Birth Control

There are many different birth control options. There are hormonal and non-hormonal types. It is important to consider your own medical history, side effects, cost and lifestyle when deciding which method is best for you.

  • Birth control is not 100% effective in preventing pregnancy. ALWAYS use condoms for dual protection against pregnancy and to protect yourself from sexually transmitted infections
  • Condoms and lubricant are free at Southwestern Public Health
