No-Hassle Birth Control
Good news for birth control pill users
There are several new contraceptives that deliver hormones much like the pill, but in a way that is longer lasting and that doesn't require taking a daily dose. You can wear your contraception where nobody can see it or get a dose from your doctor once a month. If your insurance company covers birth control pills, they will probably also cover these options, which, like the pill, are not recommended for women who are prone to blood clots, have high blood pressure, or are over 35 and smoke.
