Are prescriptions for birth control pills issued at Teen Clinic?


Someone can make an appointment at Teen Clinic and get started on any birth control method (including the pill).  During your appointment, your clinician will talk with you about your personal medical history as well as your family medical history. Then together, the two of you can discuss which method might be best for you. Then, the clinician will give you a prescription for whatever than method is.

If you are interested in the pill, the ring or the shot, there’s a good chance you can leave the clinic with your method. If you’re interested in a more long-term method, like the Nexplanon or IUD (intrauterine device), you may have to make another appointment for the insertion.

Teen Clinic has knowledgable, compassionate and non-judgemental medical professionals who are experts in working with teens. Call us to make an appointment or to ask more questions! 303-442-5160
