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/6 month Rx)
Birth control medication
Is this medication right for me?
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 unable to see your doctor for a prescription refill or evaluation
- 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
