How can I get birth control?
Birth control describes a wide range of contraceptive methods used to prevent unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections (STIs/ STDs). When someone says "birth control", they often mean hormonal birth control pills, but it's helpful to know that this term describes a larger set of options. Some other types of birth control methods include:
- Vaginal rings (like NuvaRing)
- IUDs (intrauterine devices such as Paragard)
- Birth control shot (Depo-Provera)
