What is it?
Birth Control is a means to prevent unplanned or unwanted pregnancies. Birth Control services include an evaluation of your needs, access to the proper hormonal contraceptive (oral, injection, ring, and IUD) and barrier protection (male and female condoms). Emergency contraceptives (the morning-after pill) are also available.
Who is it for?
These services are available to anyone who is sexually active and who does not wish to get pregnant.
Where is it offered?
You can access these services through your CMC or the local School Nurse.
What is it like?
The first meeting aims at assessing which contraceptive is best for you through a medical questionnaire. Subsequent meetings will help to ensure there are no annoying side effects, and the birth control you chose is still a good fit for you.
How long does it last?
The first meeting can last up to 45 minutes. Subsequent meetings are much shorter.
How can I get this service?
You may book an appointment with the Uschiniichisuu Nurse by calling your CMC. You can also visit the School Nurse and book an appointment with her.
