okay first of all i want to go on birth control because my period is rediculous. i know im only 15 but it can last for up to 9 days and i get really heavy clots so i want birth control to lighten it up. i dont know how to ask my mom for it because she thinks im sexually active even though im a virgin. she doesn't believe me when i tell her im a virgin.
okay so i dont know how to ask her and i've never been to a gynocologist and i really dont look forward to going.
is there any sort of pelvic exam needed to get birth control?
also i heard a rumor that it can make your boobs bigger, is that true? because if it was that would be a nice added bonus
mandyy answered Tuesday April 17 2007, 9:55 pm: I had this same exact problem. I'm 15, and I also have horrible periods, and my mom thinks I'm sexually active, but the difference is, I am. lol. Anyways, my mom finally suggested birth control after a while because I was missing school. So maybe talk to her about it, and tell her that your periods are horrible, don't just come out and ask for birth control. Also, maybe talk to your nurse about it. She's the one that actually subscribed me birth control. Sometimes schools have a school based health center, if your school does, talk to your nurse about getting into it and later on asking about birth control. They can give it to you in such a way your parents won't find out about it. Also, you can visit a clinic of somesort. There is an exam you have to get, annoying. But it's not that bad. Also, one of the side effects is that it may increase your boob size, but it doesn't always.

Yes, to be put on birth control the first time, it will require a gyno pelvic exam. Not just for the sake of one, but cecause the gynocologist will want to do a pap smear to rule out cervical cancer, stds, genital warts, etc. He will want to check for tumors on your ovaries that can cause irregular periods and cramping. And check for tubial pregnancy. There is a cause of clotting and long periods.
This gets you a clean bill of health and birth control pills regulated at the strength to get your menustral cycle under control AND tell your mom that YOU ARE STILL A VIRGIN! Hurray!
It's a win - win situation for you both.
Talk to her with this information, and she will more than likely agree with it knowing it will give her piece of mind knowing you are a virgin and she's had a gynocologist check you thoroughly and get you regulated once and for all.
shasha answered Tuesday April 17 2007, 8:02 pm: just tell your mom why you want birthcontrol, tell her that you really need it and so on... if she really won't get it for you then go to a planned parenthood location near you and then get them yourself. oh yeah and they do make your boobs grow about a cup size, my two friends that are on bc now went from A to B and from C to D.
