Can my dermatologist prescribe birth control?

Recommended Posts

Guest Timehealsall
I'm sixteen. Will I need to go to the gyno, or can she just prescribe it to me for my acne?

maybe she can

girls are lucky they birth control to control the acne though...

They can, but mine wouldn't until I got my yearly physical and had everything checked out first to make sure I was healthy enough to take it.

Blood tests, pap smear, breast exam,..... all that fun stuff.

I have been on the pill for 6 years,been to several gyno's,and I've never had a pap smear as a requirement for being written a prescription for it.

However,I sincerely doubt your derm would do that. Girls of menstruating age should start getting gyno check-ups anyways.

Be safe!
