UT University Health Services


University Health Services provides education about and access to a wide variety of contraceptive methods. Through our Gynecology Clinic, we offer prescriptions for birth control pills and the NuvaRing®, insertion of the ParaGard® and Mirena® intrauterine devices, insertion of the Nexplanon® implant, diaphragm prescription fitting, and administration of the Depo-Provera shot. Prior to seeing a provider in the Gynecology Clinic, you can view this document to learn more about each of these methods and figure out which one is right for you.

Emergency contraception (sold as Plan B One-Step® or Next Choice®) is available without a prescription at most pharmacies.

Condoms are the only method that provide protection against both pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Condom education is a part of the Contraception for College Students video series. UT students may pick up three free condoms each day in the Longhorn Wellness Center (SSB 1.106).
