Birth control pills usually come in packs of 28. Often the first 21 days (3 weeks of pills) contain hormones that prevent pregnancy, and the last week of pills are placebos — meaning they have no medicine in them — and that’s when you get your period. Start your next pack on time and you’re covered all the way through. Learn more about the pill on http://plannedparenthood.org.

The ring (AKA NuvaRing) is a birth control method that sits inside your vagina. The small, flexible ring prevents pregnancy by releasing hormones into your body. It works really well if you always change your ring on time every month.

Prenatal vitamins contain daily vitamins and minerals you need before and during pregnancy, like folic acid. Taking 400 mcg of folic acid every day for at least 1 month before and during pregnancy can help lower the risk for problems with your baby’s brain and spine. Pregnant or thinking about pregnancy? Talk with a nurse or doctor about how to keep you and your pregnancy healthy.

Home pregnancy tests are super accurate when you use them correctly. They work 99 out of 100 times if you use them after a late or missed period. They’re available all over the place — drugstores, grocery stores, dollar stores, gas stations.

The patch is a pretty easy to use birth control method that sticks on your skin. If you replace it weekly on time, it’s very good at preventing pregnancy.

“Abortion pill” is the popular name for using two different medicines to end a pregnancy: mifepristone and misoprostol. You can get the abortion pill from a doctor or nurse, like the ones at a Planned Parenthood health center, up to 10 weeks into your pregnancy.

The sponge is an over-the-counter birth control method that you put in your vagina before sex. The sponge contains spermicide (a substance that kills sperm) and covers your cervix in order to prevent pregnancy. Sponges are just one birth control option that doesn’t contain hormones.

Stitching like @KatrinaMajkut takes major skills. But getting tested for STDs? Usually as simple as peeing in a cup. Visit a Planned Parenthood health center and get yourself tested >> http://PlannedParenthood.org

The birth control shot (AKA Depo-Provera) is an injection you get every 3 months to prevent pregnancy. It’s a safe, convenient, and private birth control method that works really well if you always get it on time.
