If your parents failed to register your birth with the U.S. Embassy, it may be more difficult to obtain an official birth record. However, if you contact the hospital or someone in the public affairs office (for military births), you may be able to talk with an expert who can help you work through the process.
Your parent(s) should have registered your birth with the US Embassy in the country where you were born. Your parent(s) would have received a document called "Consular Report of Birth Abroad" which is a report that works similarly to an official birth certificate in many cases. It is possible to get a copy of this directly from the U.S. Department of State, or you may be able to order it online through a trusted ordering service that handles online ordering for vital record agencies in the U.S. Additionally, some countries will list your birth in their records.
