Learn about your options: take our online birth control class
Who should take this class?
Men and women who need more information about
contraception so they can make informed choices. Please complete this online class prior to
making an appointment at Campus Health Services for a birth control prescription. You will also need to complete your online
Health History if you have not done it before this time. Pay close attention to the general information and sections that apply to you. This class will take up to an hour.
After completing the online birth control class you will be able to print a consent form which can be used when making your medical appointment. Read the informed consent form thoroughly and:
- Print, sign, and date two copies of the informed consent form
- Keep one copy for your records
- Bring the other copy to Medical Services on the day of your appointment. Bring any questions you want answered about your appointment, exam, or contraceptive.
If you are taking this class as part of a learning assignment, you will find a printable certificate of completion at the end of the course content.
What to expect during your appointment
A full physical exam (including pelvic exam/pap
smear for women) is NOT required to get birth control from CHS. The nursing staff will check your blood
pressure, weight, temperature, and pulse prior to your visit. Your provider will explain any testing that
is recommended. Screening tests for
sexually transmitted infections may be offered.
Current recommendations state that women should
receive their first pap smear and pelvic exam at age 21, unless there are other
personal factors present. Please discuss
this with your provider.
For birth control appointments, please contact Campus Health Services at 928-523-8995 or visit their site.
