What are my Birth Control options?
Birth control, or “contraception”, helps prevent pregnancy. There are a number of different methods of birth control methods to choose from – including pills, patches, shots, vaginal rings, emergency contraceptive pills, and more. Whichever method of birth control you choose should depend on several factors like your health, frequency of sexual activity, number of sexual partners and desire to have children in the future.
Birth control is very commonly used with 62% of women of reproductive age currently using contraception.
When you choose a telemedicine consultation, one of our board-certified physicians will help you select the best form of birth control for you.

Why should I use Physician 360’s telemedicine services for birth control rather than go to the doctor?
Physician 360 makes accessing birth control quicker, more convenient, and cheaper than it is through the traditional doctor’s office visit. That’s because Physician 360 lets you avoid spending time in the waiting room and paying high co-pays at the doctor’s office. You can also avoid a trip to the pharmacy by having your medication delivered directly to your door!
Who should use this service?
This service is for women ages 18-50 who are seeking birth control for the prevention of pregnancy or for one of many other benefits. There are many reasons a woman may seek out birth control. Click here to learn more.
What different types of birth control does Physician 360 offer?
We offer pretty much every brand of pill, patch, or ring available in the United States. That includes Sprintec, Errin, Ortho Tri-Cyclen, Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo, Nuvaring, Xulane, Ovcon, and more. If you would like a refill of your current birth control or would like to start on a specific type, you can let your doctor know during your telemedicine consultation.
Since Physician 360 offers telemedicine services, we can’t offer you certain birth control options like long-acting reversible contraception (LARC), such as the intrauterine device (IUD) or implants, as these require medical procedures. For the same reason, we do not offer the birth control shot (Depo-Provera).
What are the common side effects of birth control?
Side effects associated with birth control include acne, nausea, reduced libido, raised blood pressure, irregular or missed periods, dizziness, anxiety, and depression. Note that these side effects are dependent on what kind of birth control you take, how long you have been taking birth control, and individual health factors. We recommend talking to a Physician 360 doctor to find the best fit for you.
Will my parents know if I get birth control with their insurance?
If you have privacy concerns regarding your reproductive health decisions, there are ways to access birth control privately! Physician 360 offers telemedicine consultations that can result in a prescription for birth control that does not require insurance. There are inexpensive options available, and our board-certified physicians will help you find one that works for you. In order to ensure your privacy, contact your pharmacy before your prescription is sent to them to let them know not to bill your insurance or contact your parents.
While Physician 360 supports patients taking control of their own healthcare, we recommend honesty if it is an option. Click here for some advice on how to have a conversation with your parents about birth control.
Is it legal to get birth control with Physician 360?
Yes. If you have any questions about how obtaining birth control with Physician 360 works, please contact us.
What’s the difference between progestin-only pills and combination pills?
Combination birth control pills contain the hormones progestin and estrogen, while progestin-only pills only contain progestin. The added estrogen in combination pills reduces breakthrough bleeding and can help with other menstrual cycle symptoms. Contrarily, progestin-only pills may make your period heavier for the first 6-9 months before it becomes lighter or goes away altogether. Talk to a Physician 360 doctor about which type of birth control pill is a better fit for you.
How effective are birth control pills?
The medical community generally agrees birth control pills are 99% effective when taken as instructed. When not taken consistently, the effectiveness of birth control pills is lower.
I’ve taken placebo pills for a few days, butI haven’t gotten my period, does that mean I’m pregnant?
It is not uncommon or dangerous to miss periods while on hormonal birth control, and it does not mean you are pregnant! If you go two or more months in a row without a period and/or have symptoms associated with pregnancy, you should take a pregnancy test.
Does alcohol affect birth control?
No, alcohol does not directly affect your birth control. However, drinking alcohol may result in side effects that affect your birth control, such as forgetting to take your pill or becoming more intoxicated than normal.
How can I skip my period with birth control?
You can skip your period with birth control by skipping the inactive or “placebo” pills in your pack and taking only active pills. You cannot skip your period with progestin-only pills, as there are no inactive pills to skip. We recommend talking to your Physician 360 doctor before using birth control to skip your period.
What do I do if I miss a dose?
First of all, don’t panic! While birth control pills are only effective for 24 hours, missing one pill is nothing to fear. Take your pill once you remember. It is important to note that it is different to miss progestin-only pills versus combination pills.
Am I still protected from pregnancy during the placebo break of my birth control?
The placebo pills in your birth control pack have no hormones in them, but as long as you took the first 21 pills correctly, you will still be protected from pregnancy during this seven-day break.
I didn’t take placebos to skip my period, but my period still showed up. What happened?
You are likely experiencing breakthrough bleeding. This is normal for the first few cycles of using the pill to skip your period, but it can continue long after you’ve started. If the bleeding persists, talk with your Physician 360 doctor about taking a placebo pill break each month until your body returns to its normal cycle before trying to skip your period again.
I just started the pill and my face is breaking out. What’s going on?
When starting the pill, it is normal to break out as your body gets used to the new hormones. Luckily, after this initial period of breaking out (which is normally no longer than 3 months), this hormonal acne usually doesn’t come back.
How do I switch from one brand of birth control to another?
It’s easy to switch brands of birth control! You can switch immediately, even in the middle of your pack. Order a Physician 360 telemedicine consultation for birth control today to get started with a new brand.
