Consider a Method

If you are considering a birth control method, it’s always important to learn about all the options. Read about the different methods here or select your insurance situation below. Most birth control methods are either free or low-cost. If you know you want an IUD or arm implant, confirm that you meet our qualifications to receive one for free.

We offer the following free clinical services to eligible women:

  • Highly effective, reversible contraception – choose between an IUD (Liletta®, Mirena®, Kyleena®, Skyla®, and ParaGard®) or the Implant (Nexplanon®)
  • Insertion and removal of device
  • Pregnancy and STI testing (when necessary)
  • Transportation to a participating clinic
  • All other methods of birth control at no or low cost through partner health centers

Have private insurance?

Check with your provider/plan about deductibles and co-pays. If your deductible is too high and you meet our income guidelines, contact us to see if you qualify for free birth control through TCI.

What’s Next?

Call one of our participating clinics and ask for a “family planning appointment.” If you know what method you are interested in, let them know on the phone. If you don’t, a healthcare provider will walk you through all the options and help you come to a decision. Let them know whether or not you have insurance, and if you want a free IUD or arm implant through the Take Control Initiative. Make sure to write down the date and time of your appointment!

Need a ride?

If you need a ride, text or call (539) 302-3615 to set up a free Lyft ride to your appointment. An agent will collect your name, phone number, and pick up and drop off location.

What to expect

Don’t forget to bring a Photo ID (School ID works!) to your appointment. Let the front desk and nurse know (again) you are interested in receiving an IUD or Implant through Take Control. If you have questions about the IUD or Implant, ask your nurse or provider! They are there to help you and address any concerns you may have.
