How do I get Birth Control?

  1. If this will be your first time getting birth control, start with the Gynecology Tutorial. 
  2. Review information about contraceptive options such as Bedsider or Health Topics: Contraception and/or visit SHARE to consider which method fits your needs best.
  3. Once you are fairly certain of what type of birth control you'd like, make an appointment with either a gynecology provider or a primary care clinic provider as desired.

Please note: for Implanon and IUD insertion, a consult visit with a gynecology provider must be scheduled prior to getting the device inserted. To set up a consult visit please call the appointment line 919-966-2281. 

How do I get refills of already prescribed birth control?

Contact the pharmacy where script was taken and ask for refills.

If I have an outside prescription for birth control pills, can I fill it at the Campus Health Pharmacy?

You can!  Bring your prescription to the Pharmacy and they will help you check your insurance coverage and fill your prescription. 

What if I've already had unprotected sex?

If you have had unprotected intercourse, look into Emergency Contraception (Plan B, ella). Plan B is available for over-the-counter purchase at most pharmacies, including the Campus Health Pharmacy and Student Stores Pharmacy.
