Birth Control


The most widely used birth control method, the pill is most effective when taken regularly, every day. Besides preventing pregnancy, the pill can improve acne, reduce symptoms of PMS, and help make periods more regular, less painful, and lighter in flow.

The most low maintenance birth control option, the ring is a small, flexible ring inserted into your vagina. The ring is worn for 3 weeks at a time. After 3 weeks, you take a 1 week break for your period before putting in a new ring.


You inject the birth control shot in your stomach or thigh area every 3 months. Because it doesn't contain estrogen, the shot is popular with people who have had negative side effects on estrogen-based birth control or are breastfeeding. It's also a good option if you have difficulty taking a daily pill.

IUDs, implanted in the uterus by a health provider, are a semi-permanent birth control method. They also prevent fertilization, but in some cases may prevent implantation. About 6.1 million women used IUDs over a one-month survey period in 2018, the same number as those relying on male condoms, according to the Guttmacher Institute, an abortion rights advocacy and research organization.


Those developments are in addition to actions some red states have taken trying to curtail family planning funding to certain reproductive health centers, which could limit access to birth control, particularly for low-income women, and to block legislative measures that would make contraceptives more accessible.


As it is, according to the organization Power To Decide, which helps guide people to available birth control, more than 19 million lower-income women of reproductive age who need publicly funded birth control live in areas without easy access to health centers offering a full range of contraceptive methods.


Wieland, the Missouri state senator, is among those with a wide view of what birth control methods might constitute abortion. He pushed last year for the measure that would have prevented Missouri Medicaid from paying for Plan B and IUDs.


A number of other generally Democratic-leaning states, have enacted laws to enhance access to birth control, including the pharmacist and extended supply measures, but also new requirements that insurers provide broad coverage of control methods.

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, out of 10,000 people taking birth control pills, about 10 will develop a blood clot after taking a combination pill for a year. This risk is still lower than the risk of developing a blood clot during pregnancy and immediately after giving birth.


Many birth control options are available today, and the birth control pill is an excellent one. But the best birth control choice for you depends on many factors. To find an option that works for you, talk with your doctor. Be sure to ask any questions you have. These might include:


Telehealth services, like Nurx, Lemonaid, SimpleHealth, and The Pill Club offer online consultations, some via video and some through messaging or a medical questionnaire, with licensed doctors and healthcare professionals who review your medical history and then provide a prescription for a recommended birth control.

If you're a woman of childbearing years who wants to delay pregnancy, you might have heard that some birth control methods are linked to cancer. Spend a minute online and you'll probably find more than a handful of contradicting reports saying some types cause cancer, while others fend it off. How do you know what to believe?


"This is a perplexing issue for many women," says Mia Gaudet, Strategic Director of Breast and Gynecologic Cancer Research at the American Cancer Society. For example, "there is consistent evidence that oral contraceptives (birth control pills) increase a woman's risk of breast and cervical cancer but decrease the risk of endometrial and ovarian cancer."


If you take or have taken birth control pills in the recent past, you are slightly more likely to develop breast cancer than women who've never used them. Researchers aren't sure if the link is due to the estrogen or progesterone. Some research hints it might be caused by high-dose estrogen, but women in studies who took the progesterone-only shot Depo-Provera have also been found to have higher rates of breast cancer. 041b061a72
