If you are over 14 years of age; under a Federal Law none as HIPPA you may purchase birth control. At14 years old or older a girl does not need parental permission to ask a doctor for birth control.

This law was enacted by congress to allow 14 year old and older medical confidentiality when it comes to the health of their reproductive system. They can make appoints to see and see their doctors for problems with their reproductive systems without parental permission or knowledge.

This is done with total confidentiality. Neither the doctor, pharmacist or anyone in their employ may release any information without the written permission of the person being treated. You have total medical confidentiality as congress wants people this age and older not to be afraid to see a doctor if they have a problem. Your parents cannot be in the exam room, by law, so that you can speak freely with the doctor knowing the doctor cannot tell your parents.

DEFINITELY NO! This is one area where age-of-consent laws do more harm than good by making you feel you are doing something terribly wrong. If you're thinking about having sex, GET CONDOMS. And argue the ethics LATER!

Peeps answered Thursday December 23 2010, 1:49 pm:
No, there is no age restriction to purchasing condoms in the United States.

Even under-age individuals are not denied the purchase of these over-the-counter contraceptive methods. It's like going to the pharmacy and buying vitamins, in some respect. Even if the package says the vitamins are for elderly, frail men a 20-something woman can purchase them.

So, just because you're not SUPPOSE to be having sex doesn't mean you can't protect yourself from the bad consequences of the behavior.

It's like denying a 14 year old girl who thinks she may be pregnant from purchasing an over-the-counter pregnancy test. It would be silly to regulate such things.

If you denied a 14 year old from purchasing condoms and other safe contraceptive methods available over-the-counter then it would not encourage better behavior by the individual, but, rather, riskier behavior.

You can purchase condoms at any age. Buy as many condoms as you want. The cashier shouldn't deny you or refuse to sell them to you.

Dear Condoms,

You can be any age to buy condoms. If you think about it that would suck if you were like 15, and you wanted to have sex, there would be alot of pregnate 15 year olds.

BitsandPieces answered Tuesday November 14 2006, 12:08 pm:
No, and you can buy other birth control, too. Make sure to get condoms with spermicide for added protection against pregnancy. Read the directions and follow them exactly. They won't work if you don't get the guy to wear them the whole time and correctly, so demand it everytime and have plenty on hand. You can get them for free at clinics usually, especially Planned Parenthood if there is one near you.

Mackenzie answered Tuesday November 14 2006, 7:46 am:
No, you do not have to be 18 to purchase condoms. Somehow, kids generally find a way to do whatever it is they want to do, regardless of what anyone says. Bottom line is, if you can't stop their decision, you might as well encourage them go about it wisely. Using condoms is considered safe sex, and nobody has the right to take that away from you. :)
