        Birth Control

        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:

        • Condoms
        • Vaginal rings (like NuvaRing)
        • IUDs (intrauterine devices such as Paragard)
        • Birth control shot (Depo-Provera)

        Not sure which birth control option is right for you? Good news! Sesame offers convenient reproductive health services including:

        • Birth control consultations
        • Birth control prescriptions
        • Women's health services
        • IUD removal
        • Specialist referrals

        Birth control subscriptions are commonly available through primary care providers or women's health centers (like OB/GYN clinics). Don't let your insurance plan tell you which doctor you have to see. Pick a provider you want to see and book your appointment on your schedule. It's that simple.

        Health care providers on Sesame offer both in-person and telehealth family planning services at clear and affordable prices. Whether you need a new prescription or a refill of an existing prescription, you can save up to 60% when you book birth control services through Sesame- no health insurance needed.

        What are the benefits of birth control?

        Birth control is a low-cost, safe, and effective way of preventing unplanned pregnancies. Hormonal birth control pills are far less expensive than sterilization procedures such as tubal ligation or vasectomy and have the potential to be 99% effective, if used routinely. Birth control pills usually contain a combination of the hormones estrogen and progestin and provide a number of other benefits in addition to their contraceptive use. Birth control pills can help protect against:

        • Acne

        • Irregular or heavy periods

        • Bone thinning

        • Cysts

        • Cancer (such as endometrial and ovarian cancer)

        • Iron deficiency

        • Infections

        Birth control pills do not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

        Not sure what type of birth control is right for you? Book a visit with a real, quality doctor on Sesame to talk about birth control options. In-person and telehealth visits are available. Save up to 60% on family planning services when you book through Sesame and get quality care at your convenience- no insurance needed.

        How much does birth control cost?

        The cost of birth control may vary depending on your insurance plan and the type of contraception you're looking for. Price ranges for common forms of birth control are:

        Birth control pills: Birth control pills usually cost between $0-$50 per month. A prescription is needed for hormonal birth control pills, so you will need to have a consultation or physical with a health care professional before you can purchase this type of birth control. If you are uninsured, this visit can cost anywhere from $20-$100+.

        Intrauterine device (IUD): IUDs must be inserted by a doctor, and can cost between $0-$1,300. An IUD is 99% effective in preventing unplanned pregnancies and can last anywhere from 3-12 years.

        Birth control shots (Depo-Provera): Birth control shots contain the hormone progestin, which will prevent ovulation. Basically, this means that there will be no egg to fertilize, making pregnancy extremely unlikely. Birth control shots must be given every 3 months and can cost between $0-$150 per shot.

        Vaginal ring (NuvaRing): Vaginal rings release hormones that prevent ovulation. Vaginal rings are 91% effective in preventing unplanned pregnancies but must be replaced every month. Vaginal rings (such as NuvaRing) can cost between $0-$200.

        Not sure what type of birth control is right for you? Talk to primary care or women's health providers on Sesame to discuss options and costs. Doctors on Sesame can prescribe birth control for new patients, refill existing prescriptions, and help answer any questions you may have. Save up to 60% on birth control services with Sesame and book an in-person or video visit with a real, quality doctor in San Buenaventura, CA.

        Can you buy birth control pills over the counter?

        If you are looking for birth control without a prescription, condoms (male and female) and spermicide can be purchased over the counter at most drugstores. Birth control pills must be prescribed before they can be purchased.

        What is emergency contraception?

        Emergency contraception (or morning-after pills) is a safe and effective method of birth control that is used after unprotected sex. The two most common forms of emergency contraception are:

        Emergency contraception pills: Pills with ulipristal acetate (ella) or pills with levonorgestrel (Plan B) can prevent unplanned pregnancy if taken within 5 days of unprotected sex. ella is the most effective emergency contraception pill available, but requires a prescription for purchase. Plan B can be purchased over-the-counter at most major drugstores, but is most effective if taken within 3 days of unprotected sex.

        Paragard IUD: A copper IUD is the most effective form of emergency contraception (99.9% effective if inserted within 5 days after unprotected sex). An IUD can prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex as well as provide birth control for up to 12 years after insertion. IUDs can cost up to $1000, depending on your health insurance.

        What is the difference between birth control pills and condoms?

        Birth control pills and condoms are both common forms of contraception: meaning that they can help prevent unplanned pregnancies. Condoms catch sperm ejaculated during sex, while oral contraceptives (birth control pills) use hormones such as progestin and estrogen to prevent ovulation. If no egg is present for sperm to fertilize, pregnancy cannot occur. Other common birth control methods include:

        • Intrauterine devices (IUDs)

        • Vaginal rings (like NuvaRing)

        • Birth control shots (with the hormone progestin)

        While condoms protect against some sexually transmitted infections (STIs), birth control does not offer protection from STIs.

        Birth control pills must be prescribed before they can be purchased. Condoms can be purchased at most convenience stores.

        Hormonal birth control pills do have a number of side effects/ benefits in addition to their contraceptive uses. Because these oral contraceptives release hormones into the body, they can help women protect themselves against conditions such as:

        • Acne

        • Irregular periods

        • Bone thinning

        • Cervical/ ovarian cancer

        • Anemia (iron deficiency)

        Questions about different types of birth control? Book an online or in-person visit with a health care provider on Sesame to ask any questions you may have or get a new prescription for birth control. Doctors on Sesame will consider your medical history and help determine what form of contraception is best for you. If you need a prescription refill, doctors on Sesame can send an order to your local pharmacy without the hassle of driving to a doctor's office.

        Does birth control help reduce acne?

        Hormonal birth control pills work by changing hormone levels in a woman's body to prevent ovulation and ease menstrual symptoms. Pills containing both estrogen and progestin can help reduce acne by decreasing hormones (androgen) that lead to the production of sebum (an acne-causing oil released by pores). Progestin-only oral contraceptives, such as Camila, will not help reduce acne.

        The combination pills currently approved by the FDA to help treat acne are:

        • Yaz
        • Ortho Tri-Cyclen
        • Beyaz
        • Estrostep

        Can I get a prescription for birth control online?

        Yep! With convenient and affordable in-person and video birth control consultations, Sesame makes it easier than ever to speak to a doctor about birth control options from the comfort of your home. Get in touch with a primary care or women's health care provider on Sesame to discuss your medical history and lifestyle factors that will help determine what type of birth control is right for you.

        Save up to 60% on family planning services in San Buenaventura, CA when you book through Sesame and get quality care at your convenience- no insurance needed.

        Can I get a birth control prescription without an exam?

        Depending on the state you live in, you may be able to get a prescription for birth control directly from a pharmacist. Call your local pharmacy to check if your state allows for access to birth control without a prescription from a health care provider.

        If you do live in a state that allows pharmacists to prescribe birth control, you will be screened via a questionnaire and be asked to take a blood pressure test to make sure that you do not have any health conditions that might make taking birth control dangerous. High blood pressure, medical history of cancer, or poor cardiovascular health are all risk factors that make birth control potentially dangerous.

        When can I book Sesame video birth control consults?

        Sesame video birth control consults are available 24/7 in all 50 states and can be used whenever you need to talk to a health care provider about birth control.
