Birth Control (Contraception)
“Contraceptive” is another name for birth control. There are a variety of birth control options available. Student Health Services providers can discuss contraceptive options and provide information about sexual health. Call 703-993-2831 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. Emergency Contraception is available at Student Health Clinics for a fee.
Referrals can be given for students seeking the hormonal implant, IUD’s, and barrier method fittings.
Mason students can pick up FREE external (male) condoms, dental dams, and lubrication from Student Health Services Fairfax Clinic (SUB 1, Room 2300). RAs & RSOs can submit the Safer Sex Condom Request Form for residence halls and events.
