Birth Control Methods

What birth control method might work for me?

There are A LOT of options out there. Choosing one all just depends on your preferences, such as: the effect it may have on your period, how it’s applied to your body, or how and where to get it, etc. If you try one out and end up deciding it’s not working for you, you can switch and try a different one!

Check out our brochures below, compare the different types on Bedsider, or take our quiz below to get some recommendations.
