Birth Control Options

For your teen, finding the right birth control can be empowering.

It’s one simple but incredibly impactful way they can take control of their future. For you, birth control can mean peace of mind, knowing that they’re less likely to have an unplanned pregnancy.

With so many options, there’s a birth control option for everyone. Helping your teen find the best one for them is easy.

Condoms and the pill are the most popular birth control options for teens. But research increasingly shows that longer-lasting methods like IUDs and implants are great options for teens too. Implants last up to 3 years while some IUDs last up to 12 (but can be removed at any point in time), and there’s nothing you have to think about on a daily basis, so there’s no way to have a whoops moment!

Speaking of whoops moments, don’t forget to talk about Emergency Contraception, which can prevent pregnancy if taken soon after sex.
