Ah back to school time. Time for new school supplies, clothes, and birth control. Yup, you heard correct, birth control! If pregnancy is not part of your plan in the near future, you may want to learn about your birth control options.
We’ve all heard about birth control and how it can prevent pregnancy but sometimes we just don’t know how to get it, right? Finding the nearest Planned Parenthood to your school before heading there can give you a head start to your mission. We’ll call it Mission: Obtain Birth Control! Hmm okay maybe not. But all jokes aside, knowing where you can get your birth control, no matter what form of it you choose, is ideal for staying safe throughout your college years. Believe it or not, some campuses even offer contraceptives. It’s important to look up your on-campus health center and see what they have to offer.
Planned Parenthood makes it as easy as possible to get your birth control! No matter how you want to get your birth control, we got you covered. One option is Pills Now Pay Later. With this option you can receive up to 13 months of pills and make monthly payments as you go. Pretty cool, huh? There’s also the option of Pills Now Pay Now, which is just how it sounds, you receive all 13 packs of your pills at once at the time of your health center visit. Lastly, the Mail A Pill option sends the pills directly to you! Yeah, that one is my favorite too.
College-aged women know birth control is vital for staying protected, yet you might not want your parents knowing you are on birth control. We always think it’s a good idea to have open communication regarding your sexual health with your parents or someone close to you that you can trust but we know this isn’t always a possibility. Planned Parenthood offers insurance confidentiality which means the details of your visit don’t have to be specified on the insurance bill. Staying worry-free and having that peace of mind while having fun in college makes your experience all the more better. Check birth control off your back to school checklist and take on the upcoming school year with ease. You got this!
