  1. Health services. If you couldn't figure that out on your own you probably shouldn't be having sex in the first place.

    1. No need to be rude. Sometimes the obvious to one person is not the obvious to another.

    2. How is this not obvious. Where do you get pills? The doctors office. Where do you get birth control pills? The doctors office. Oh and to make it easier, any advertisement for it would say, "Talk to your doctor about _____". Just silly.

    3. Agreed. I feel obligated to point out that the pill also doesn't protect against STDs and no form of birth control alone is 100% effective.

    4. YES. Thank you 1c. Always use two forms. Please. I know so many people who had "surprises" while on some form of birth control because they were only using one kind.

    5. Well....given that in some places, pharmacists can deny you medicine due to their own personal "religious beliefs" (see: morning after pill debates), it's not entirely unreasonable to be unsure if they commonly did the same thing with the pill, since apparently one is just a higher dose of the other....(someone feel free to correct me on the higher dose thing)

    6. 1e here...forgot to add, in some countries birth control pills are OTC....OP may be from one of those countries and have the idea that going to your doctor for the pill would be like asking for a prescription to Advil.

  2. You'll need a prescription, so Health Services, or your family doctor if you have one.

  3. Health services. They're covered by the student healthcare plan.

    1. What if you opted out because you're covered by parents?

    2. Then, and this is true for all prescriptions, you have to pay unless it's covered by your parents' insurance or they are willing to pay, depending on what you mean by "covered by parents" (sorry not trying to sound sassy but I know it's coming off that way). But the doctors there will still prescribe it if that's what you're asking.

    3. If you're covered by parents, then your prescriptions are covered by your parent's insurance (was that not obvious?)

      Unless you mean how to use the coverage your parents have for you? You will usually need a card that has the insurance company's info on it. Other insurance will pay if you submit the receipt to them (you pay first and get reimbersed).

  4. Health services if you're on the school plan/parent's plan/able to pay. They do more than just the pill, they do IUD's as well if you're looking for more long-term BC's.

  6. Birth control pills are used to control hormones, and they can act as a medicine to treat hormone-related physical problems like acne! So it's not necessarily about sex, guys! B-)

    1. You're right. The pill is a common treatment for dysmenorrhea, as well as severe acne and irregular periods.

      Delete
    2. If this was the case, OP should have went to a doctor for advice. So yes, you're both right but I'll bet OP wants them for safe sex or else she wouldn't need to ask the internet and instead would have a doctors prescription already.

  7. Then only pill you need is the Lord Jesus Christ.
