Birth Control

Less than half of high schools in the United States mandate contraceptive and sexual health education, resulting in many incoming college students receiving inaccurate information- or no information at all- related to medically accurate contraceptive use. In this presentation, our health educators discuss all things birth control and end with a Q&A where students will have the opportunity to anonymously ask questions surrounding contraception and sexual health.

The following objectives will be met during this interactive presentation:

  • Students will be able to recognize all FDA-approved birth control methods according to their level of effectiveness at preventing pregnancy.
  • Students will understand how hormonal and barrier contraceptive work.
  • Students will understand the benefits and side-effects of different FDA-approved birth control methods.
  • Students will be able to identify the difference between birth control and emergency contraception.
  • Students will be challenged to question myths surrounding birth control and sexually transmitted infections (STI's).
  • Students will be able to navigate places they can access birth control.
