Prescription Pill without parents knowledge? watch

    So me and my girlfriend have been talking about replacing condoms with the pill but we just found out one of her friends payed £25 for 2 and a half weeks of it, which is pretty damn expensive.

    So we are thinking she could get prescribed it which would make it free, BUT then I'm assuming her parents would find out about it? I've never really visited the GP unless it's for holiday jabs so I'm not sure how it works...will her parents find out if she gets prescribed the pill? I mean worst case scenario we just buy it and split the cost, which isn't too bad tbh.

    Would appreciate any help, thanks.

    There's no reason why her parents should find out. They won't send a letter out or anything or mention it at all to anyone outside of the doctor's office. Completely private. She'll walk into the office, discuss her needs and talk about any past medical issues and then will be given the prescription. She just takes that a pharmacy and she'll have her pills.

    No the doctor wouldn't be allowed to tell the parents.
