Birth Control Resources

Posted by Tammi A. Tannura -

While my previous post addressed long-acting reversible contraception for men, below are some valuable resources that cover many other birth control options. Most of the sites are targeted toward teens and young adults.


http://www.plannedparenthood.org/health-topics/birth-control-4211.htm

Planned Parenthood offers a wealth of resources from birth control to sexually transmitted infections to talking to kids about sex and sexuality.


http://bedsider.org/

This website is from the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. The target audience for this website is young adults. All medical content was developed in collaboration with medical experts and young adults. Of particular note is a specific section on the website called Guy's Guide to Birth Control. Bedsider also can provide daily, weekly or monthly birth control reminders depending on the method used.

Sponsored by MTV, this website targets teens and young adults. In addition to information about birth control, the site has information about sexually transmitted infections and MTV's annual GYT (Get Yourself Tested) campaign.


http://sexetc.org/

In addition to hot topics such as relationships, pregnancy, sex education and sexual minority issues, sexetc.org offers an entire section on birth control that is youth friendly. There is even a section on birth control for guys.


Other noteworthy websites with information about sex, sexuality and other health information relevant to teens and young adults include:

www.iwannaknow.org

This website covers sexual health in general. The American Sexual Health Association is responsible for this website.


http://goaskalice.columbia.edu/

Go Ask Alice is a general health resource from Columbia University. In addition to questions about sexual and reproductive health, Go Ask Alice also includes information about alcohol and other drugs, emotional health, relationships and fitness.

Check these out. I'd be interested to hear what you think about these resources.

These links are great resources for my students to use in class or to find information for a project. I plan on utilizing them for new and up to date information for myself. Thanks for sharing.
