Texas requires that young people under the age of 18 obtain parental consent to access birth control. However, young people under the age of 18 can access birth control without parental consent and at no cost at federally funded family planning providers under the Title X program.
We have some resources below that talk about birth control and how to access it, but if you’d like to talk anonymously with a person who can answer your specific questions or provide you with more information, provide emotional support through experiences like taking a pregnancy test, or provide you with guidance on how to overcome barriers like living far from a Title X provider, please text us at 866-999-5263. Our text hotline is open from 8 am to 11 pm CST, your text is completely anonymous, and there will be a live person on the other end responding to your questions and concerns. Volunteers on our text line can also provide you with information about accessing abortion, STI testing, and other reproductive health concerns.
