It’s easy to be confused by all the birth control options out there. Recently Cosmopolitan Magazine answered some reoccurring questions from readers about their birth control concerns. Read them below.
My NuvaRing sometimes pops out during sex. How can I stop this from happening?
Try inserting it at a higher place in your vagina. Should it keep dislodging, take it out just before intercourse and put it back in right after; it can be out of your body for three hours and you’re still protected.
Where can I get cheap birth control?
Planned Parenthood offers contraception on a sliding scale, as do city and state women’s-health centers. Many drugstore chains also have deals on generic birth-control pills that can run you under $10 a month. And starting in 2012, you’ll pay nada for contraceptives offered via prescription (such as the Pill, ring, or IUD); as part of the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies have to pick up the co-pay.
Am I hurting my body by using emergency contraception repeatedly?
EC appears to be safe when taken multiple times, but gynos warn that no long-term studies have been done.
