What questions can you ask your doctor about birth control?

Discussion Starter

You can ask your doctor anything! What you ask is totally up to you and what you want to know. Here are a few questions you may want to ask: 

  • What are my options? 

  • How do I use each?  

  • How long does each last for? How do I replace it?  

  • Are there any the side effects?  

  • What if I change my mind?  

  • Does it affect other medication that I’m on?  

  • Does it protect me from HIV and other STIs? 

Remember, it’s important you understand your options so don’t be afraid to ask more questions on anything you want to know more about!
