Yes. Teenagers (and anyone under 18) can get birth control without their parent’s permission and without their parents knowing at some, but not all, clinics in Texas. The clinics that will provide birth control to minors without parental involvement are called Title X clinics. These clinics get federal funding, so they do not have to follow the same rules as clinics that get funding from the state. Click here to find a Title X clinic near you where you can get confidential birth control. If you are a minor currently on Medicaid, you can get birth control at any clinic in Texas that accepts Medicaid without parental consent.
