YOU ASKED, WE ANSWERED!
- Can I get on birth control without my parent’s permission?
Great question! Yes. In Montana, the law says that minors have the right to access sexual healthcare without the consent or notification of their parents. That means they can start a birth control method or get tested for STIs without their parents being involved. In fact, it’s illegal for clinics to share sexual health information with parents (or anyone else!) without the patient’s permission.
That being said, it’s totally understandable if your parents are worried about you. That’s their job! Be sure to talk to them about your healthcare and choices when you are ready. Also, if you are being sexually abused by someone who is responsible for you (a parent, guardian, or other adult) we are responsible to help you.
- What is the first step after finding out you’re pregnant, but can’t talk to your parents?
Teen Clinic is here for you! We know it can be scary to learn you’re pregnant. The first step is to connect with someone you trust who will support you. Teen Clinic offers free, unbiased decision counseling to help you learn more about your options. You’re welcome to bring your support person with you. We’re also able to meet with your family or partner if you need help having this discussion. Whether you decide to pursue parenting, consider adoption, or end your pregnancy, Teen Clinic will give you a safe place to connect with the next step.
- Where should I go for birth control now that I’m too old and am no longer able to use the Teen Clinic?
Never fear —Family Planning is here! We offer services to all people regardless of their age, race, language, ethnicity, sexual orientation, sex or gender. Birth control and STI-related services are available on a sliding scale. How much you pay depends on your income and household size.
