Thanks, Birth Control! Learn about the #ThxBirthControl campaign.

Birth control has played a direct and powerful role in countless aspects of all of our lives. For me, personally, it has made a huge difference – from helping to regulate debilitating monthly symptoms and anemia, to later helping me plan my family and safely space out my pregnancies. Now I have my two wonderful daughters. For that I am thankful.

But what about you? What’s been your experience with birth control?  Share your stories as part of today’s #ThxBirthControl outreach on social media!


Today all across the nation, women just like you are saying Thanks Birth Control! And we invite YOU to join The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, Bedsider, and us in this national movement.

Top Ten Reasons We Say #ThxBirthControl!

  1. Thanks for fewer unplanned pregnancies (women using birth control carefully and consistently account for only 5% of all unplanned pregnancies).
  2. Thanks for more economic opportunities for women.
  3. Thanks for giving us the freedom to plan a family on our own terms.
