Many years ago the original research on these hormonal preparations was focused of solving the problems of irregular menses, menstrual pain, etc. During pilot studies in the Bahamas they realized the rate of birth went down for test subjects. Work later shifted to birth control. Your doc can certainly use these to help with regulating your period.

Not more than a girl


Let's start by saying any medication has the potential to affect a developing fetus. However, the hormones in contraceptive pills (estrogens and progesterones) are also present in even higher levels during a normal pregnancy. So, while they may affect the pregnancy, they are not going to turn your little boy into a girl or anything like that because these hormones are present anyway.

Depends


It depends on your age, state laws, and the type of practice you are seen in. You may be able to obtain contraception without parental consent in certain contexts. You can start by calling your local health department or Planned Parenthood for answers.
