So you want to have sex, but you don’t want to get pregnant. How can you be sure to do one and not the other?
Most of us know about the existence of birth control methods, but times have changed, access to information varies, and everyone could use a refresher now and then!
Whether you’re about to get a prescription for the first time, or have been playing the contraception game for years, there’s a lot to keep in mind when trying to figure out which form does the trick for you.
Let’s cover all the bases for navigating the great, wide world of birth control. We’ll take a look at some of the different types, side effects, plus how to get a prescription in the first place. So grab a pen and take some notes because, as we all know, the struggle has never been more real.
Even though contraception and conception involve polar opposite intentions, they couldn’t be more related. A lack of one can very well land you with the other. However, we’re also talking about two extremely complicated topics. And you may not realize how complicated until you start experiencing them yourself.
As with everything complex, research is everything. To help contribute to your understanding of the issues, we’ve compiled our top blogs & podcasts on these topics.
Where would so many of us be without birth control? Starting a family long before we were ready? Terrified of sex before we met “the one,” which for some could result in 40-year-old virgin status? Or, would we be one of the few lucky ones who never misses a period?
Unfortunately for millions of women around the world, these situations are very real. They are never taught about “family planning” and contraception, they don’t have access to it, and for some, it’s too expensive.
Thankfully, there are people out there that understand birth control is something all women should be entitled to having. The people at Bedsider.org started a campaign called #THXBirthControl – designed to break down the archaic stigmas attached to contraception and help teens and young women find the right method for them.

When it comes to history, we rarely get taught about sex and sexuality – unless you’re taking a specific college course. In fact, we rarely get taught about sex and sexuality at all.
While it’s obvious that things change and progress over centuries (we aren’t exactly using carrier pigeons anymore), some stuff seems to have gone… backwards.
