Do you need to have an exam to get on birth control?

“I recently had a baby with my finance. We’re both underage. I have insurance under my dad nut my parents are against me getting birth control. Id like to secretly get it from family planning but im uncomfortable having anyone examine my body other than my doctor. My doctor saw me last month for my post partum check up & prescribed me the pill. Would I need to still have an exam.”

A: At Family Planning, a person does not need to have parental consent to get on birth control. However, all new patients must have an exam to get on birth control.
