Got Big Goals for 2023? Birth Control Can Help!
There are lots of methods to choose from.
One of the things some people enjoy at the end of the year (in addition to the holiday parties, of course) is setting goals for the new year.
January can feel like a fresh start, which means December is a great opportunity to sit down and consider what you hope to accomplish in the next 365 days. Some people find it helpful to make lists with items they can check off one by one, while others prefer to make vision boards with words and pictures that capture the determination and effort they’ll need to succeed.
Whatever your approach is (and whatever your goal is too!), birth control can support you. Here’s how! And remember, for free or low-cost access to all the methods of birth control, make an appointment to talk to a provider at your nearest The Right Time health center.
Birth control can make your periods less painful, more predictable, or go away all together!
If you have a painful period, physical activity of any kind (even just getting out of bed or sitting in at a desk) can be difficult. Hormonal methods like the IUD or the pill can help. You can also use these methods (along with the ring or the patch) to skip your period altogether if it’s unpredictable and you don’t want to worry each month about getting it at an inconvenient time.
Birth control can help if you’re worried about getting pregnant!
If you’re someone who worries about getting pregnant every time they have sex, that can add up to a lot of worrying over a year! But it doesn’t have to be that way. The IUD and the implant are more than 99% effective at preventing pregnancy, so if you’d rather limit this type of distraction, these methods are available for free or at a low-cost at your nearest The Right Time health center.
No matter what 2023 brings your way, we wish you happiness, health, and success! If we can do anything to help along the way, make an appointment at any of our health centers for free or low-cost access to all the methods of birth control.
