Learn about two "get it and forget it" birth control methods:
The IUD (intrauterine device) is a small, T-shaped device. It is inserted into the uterus by a healthcare provider.
The implant is the size of a small match stick and is made of flexible plastic. It is inserted under the top layer of skin in the upper arm by a healthcare provider.
Know Your Rights
Youth in Illinois can get many sexual health services, including birth control, on their own! We encourage you to talk with a trusted adult, but you do not need anyone’s permission to make an appointment. You can also come to Planned Parenthood no matter your income, insurance, gender identity, sexuality or immigration status.
Your privacy is very important to us! We follow the law to make sure your visit is confidential.
