How do you tell your parents you're having sex?

Anonymous
I recently started having sex with my boyfriend. I'm sixteen and I generally make very responsible decisions. My boyfriend is a good guy and my parents like him a lot. I don't want them to look at him or me differently. I need to tell them so I can get on birth control and I feel like they have a right to know. I'm just looking for suggestions on the best way to do this. I realize it's not something that is going to go over entirely smooth.
