Birth Control Advice and Management Online

Birth control can be used for a variety of reasons, but the most common is to prevent pregnancy.

Depending on your specific needs and symptoms, your treating clinician will recommend the best birth control option for you. There are many forms of birth control, including:

  • Birth Control Pills
  • Condoms
  • The Diaphragm
  • The Cervical Cap
  • Intrauterine Device (IUD)
  • The Contraceptive Implant
  • Contraceptive Sponge
  • Spermicide
  • Contraceptive Injections
  • The Vaginal Ring
  • Contraceptive Patch

During a video consult on Amwell, your doctor will ask you a series of specific questions to help determine which option is right for you. If necessary, your provider may recommend an in-person examination by an in-person provider. Your treatment options for any symptoms you’re trying to manage are based on the duration and severity of your symptoms and your medical history. Along with this information, your doctor may ask you if you are using other forms of birth control to prevent pregnancy and protect against contracting STIs.

Before your visit, you should have available your most recent vital sign and lab results – such as blood pressure, pap smear, blood sugar, and cholesterol readings – as your overall physical well-being is a factor in the care your physician will provide to you. Also, make sure to tell your telehealth provider about any other medical conditions, existing prescriptions, or over the counter medications you are taking. Some medications do not react well with birth control medications, so it’s important to be honest and open with your provider to avoid complications.
