Thinking about birth control and not sure which method is right for you?
The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy (The National Campaign) has posted an educational birth control video series to inform women on the various forms of birth control available to them.
One in four young women become pregnant by the age of 20. The National Campaign aims to reduce the rate of unintended pregnancy and to keep teens and young adults informed about the topics of sex, relationships, abstinence, and birth control. Through their stayteen.org website, they find fun and informative ways to help teens be better equipped at planning their future.
Each video in the series takes you through a method of birth control, its side effects, its durability, and whether or not having a good memory is required (because forgetting your pill is a big no-no).
From learning about the "The Pill" to what is an "IUD," these videos cover a step-by-step process of how they each work – all with fun and informative visuals. These videos can be watched as quickly as it takes to make an appointment at your local Planned Parenthood health center.
So if you're wondering what kind of birth control would fit your lifestyle best, check out the rest of the series here.
