I’m 17 and I’m sexually active. I want to be on BC just to add more protection when I have sex with my boyfriend and regulate my period/period symptoms. I’ve been asking my mother for a year or so now for a gynecologist appointment...and no success (keep in mind that she’s aware that I’m sexually active). Usually when I ask it’s followed by generic questions about my vaginal health (my mother is a doctor) and “No, you don’t need an appointment.”

How do I convince her to make an appointment and put me on the pill? I need to put it as delicately as possible. Thank you for taking the time to read this! 💖🌸💘
