New to the birth control conversation? Feel like you don’t have all the facts? This video gives a basic overview of how birth control works.

How birth control works

The more you know about how birth control works, the easier it will be to have conversations with your doctor about which kind is right for you.

Clinics

control

The clinics listed below all provide services you might need and are a good starting place if you don’t already have a women’s health care provider. While you can go to any women’s health clinic, these are a part of a network that are going above and beyond to help women get exactly what they need for birth control.

You don’t HAVE to make an appointment. Many clinics will try to help you set an appointment if you just walk in without calling, but if they’re already busy there’s no guarantee that you’ll see the health care provider quickly, or even that day.

Making an appointment is easy and makes the process less complicated.

Remember, some clinics offer services for lower costs, or free, so be sure to ask if they can help when you call to make your appointment.

About us

Own Every Piece is a campaign run by a team at the UTHealth School of Public Health; many of us are women just like you. At some point in our lives, we were totally overwhelmed and confused by the idea of getting birth control— what kind was best? how to afford it? where to get it? why did it matter?

We wanted to make the process easier for other women by showing real and honest information that was easy to understand. Much like this campaign, we're a diverse team whose lives encompass many colors that are constantly shifting. Our ages span from 25 to 75, but our mission remains the same:

We want you to own every piece of what makes your life beautiful, including birth control.
