How do I ask my doctor about certain methods and how they will affect me?
Be empowered to ask as many or as little questions as you would like. The doctor will help you find a birth control option that works best for your body and your life.
Empower yourself to research before your doctor’s appointment. Use our Birth Control Tool to find options that might interest you. Remember, the best decision is a fully informed one, free of coercion.
List your questions (on paper or in your phone) for the doctor before your appointment so you don’t forget them.
Ask about which methods they think would work best for you.
Don’t be afraid to ask about specific side effects, how effective the birth control method is, and how much it costs.
