You can ask your regular doctor about birth control during a check-up. Or, you can make an appointment just to talk about birth control. If you’re worried about cost and keeping the visit private, find a clinic in your area that may be able to help.
Your health care provider will find out about your health history and may suggest other procedures, like a pap smear or STI tests, while you’re there.
There are many types of birth control to choose from, so your health care provider will
- help you decide which birth control is best for you, and
- make sure you understand how to use it before you leave the doctor’s office or clinic.
The conversation you have during your visit will be confidential.
