Birth Control

There are a variety of contraceptive (birth control) options available. Student Health Services providers can discuss contraceptive options and provide information about sexual health. Call to schedule an appointment to discuss your options.

Student Health Services can write prescriptions for all oral contraceptives (birth control pills), NuvaRing, Seasonale, Ortho Evra Patch, barrier methods, and  Depo-Provera. Most prescriptions can be filled at a local pharmacy. Referrals can be given for students seeking the hormonal implant, IUD’s, and barrier method fittings.  Emergency Contraception is available at Student Health Clinics. The patient is responsible for all fees.
