If your Student Health physician or nurse practitioner has written an ongoing prescription for contraception, you may refill your prescription at the dispensary during refill hours.  All prescription orders expire one year after issue.  At your visit, discuss how long your order will extend.  Sometimes follow-up appointments are requested by your provider before one year.

Birth Control

Student Health Services offers prescription and non-prescription methods of contraception and counseling. 

  • Contraceptives are purchased at Student Health based on the Family Planning sliding scale fee.
  • Insurance is NOT billed for contraceptives.
  • A contraceptive prescription can be sent to a retail pharmacy.  Because of the Affordable Care Act, many women with prescription coverage no longer have a co-payment for a contraceptive prescription.  The student is responsible for understanding her insurance benefits and co pays regarding contraceptive prescriptions.
  • Prescriptions written by providers outside Student Health Services are not filled at the Student Health dispensary.

The following contraceptive products are available at Student Health Services:

  • Condoms – condoms are sold during Family Planning visits only.  Condoms are also sold at the Wellness Resource Center (10 condoms for $1)
  • Emergency contraception, also called the “morning after pill”
  • Oral contraceptive pills (Products vary)
  • NuvaRing
  • Depo-Provera injections

Availability of supplies and specific products is subject to change.
If you are interested in a form of contraception not listed, information is available at Student Health about local resources for other methods such as an intrauterine device or contraceptive implant.

For more information about contraception and what method would be best for you go to:

Birth control appointments are routine or “future” appointments.  Call 215-204-7500 to schedule an appointment.  A new birth control method can be started during an annual gynecology appointment.

If you have had a gynecology examination elsewhere in the past year:

  • You do not need another gynecology examination to receive birth control at Student Health.
  • Have a copy of your last gynecology examination (including results of tests done) sent to Student Health.
  • Once your records are received, Student Health will schedule your appointment
