I'm going to say yes but with a age of 18 or older.
Why do you think there should be an age limit?
There are no age limits to condoms, or to Plan B emergency contraception.
Why should bc pills, which have proven to be safe and effective be reserved only for adult females?
Yeah, 'cause we certainly wouldn't want to prevent pre-18 year olds getting pregnant...*rolls eyes*
Whether they should or shouldn't be, 17 year olds and under are having sex. Putting the age limit on getting contaception just makes it pretty certain
that the teenage pregnancy rate will go up.
I actually don't know that this is a good idea. There are those for whom bc is problematic. I think I'm more inclined to keep a doctor in the mix. Haven't voted in the poll yet.
So if my 10 year old granddaughter goes in she should be able to buy them with no questions asked. Here in NH you have to be over 18 to buy a bic lighter and you have to show you ID. No matter how old you are.If a teenager. Wants them or needs them then her parents or someone can get rhem. I guess I'm just old fashioned or just plain old. It appears Im all ways on the other side of the of the street in here
That's a point, of course. I really think it's better to keep a doc involved.
If your 10 year old granddaughter is having sex, you've got more problems than can be answered with a pill.
But yes, she should be able to buy birth control pills. Getting pregnant at 10 is DANGEROUS, not to mention unconscionable on the part of the adults in her life.
grandpa to grandpa,
Puberty shows up earlier now. At least it did for me.
I've been noticing lately that at least in US, it's easier to find a nurse practitioner. And if we were to take the religious issues out of it, logic would dictate that the most favorable medical situation would be the school nurse practitioner. School staff are usually the first to notice sexual interest and activity. But many parents would choose denial and sometimes even open hostility towards the messager. Especially when the messager was also holding birth control pills.
