- Before you have this conversation with your friend, consider their background, beliefs, and if they’d feel judged by your approach.
- If your friend is sexually active, let them know that you respect their decision and support them, and only want to help make sure they’re protected.
- Share your birth control story with them (if possible) and let them know how you were able to get it.
- Suggest low-cost clinics that offer services that won’t conflict with their beliefs.
Here are some helpful ways to start a conversation.
