Birth Control

Birth control medications can help prevent unplanned pregnancy, reduce menstrual symptoms, regulate your cycle, and can even reduce acne. The hormones they contain are very safe and cause few side effects in most healthy women. ($29 physician fee)

Am I a good candidate for birth control medication?

YES! If you:

  • Are healthy, age 18-44, and need a refill OR new prescription for birth control medication
  • Would like to change the type of birth control you are using
  • Are temporarily unable to see your gynecologist for a refill
  • Have had a normal gynecologic exam within 2 years

Do I need an exam first?

Experts believe that:

  • Young, healthy women may start birth control without first having a Pap smear or pelvic exam
  • The risks of unplanned pregnancy can be worse than the risk of starting medication
  • Women should have ongoing gynecologic care
  • Anyone with certain high risk criteria should be seen by their gynecologist
  • Anyone with unusual pain or bleeding should be seen by a gynecologist
