U need prescription: Your family doc, ob/gyn physician, or if you don't have a private doc, you can use your local planned-parenthood service to obtain such care and prescription for birth control. Also, condom is an effective birth control method that does not require a prescription and has an advantage of preventing stds--birth control pills cannot claim this protection. Consult doc. Good luck.

See a doc: I you want a prescriptions for birth control beside condoms and spermicide which is over the counter then you need to make an appointment with your doctor, go to a reduced fee clinic like a planne parenthood, or try even the county health department.
