Birth control - how do the monthly prescriptions work?
posted by xicana63 to health & fitness (23 answers total)
So I have never been on birth control until last month. At my first visit to the OBGYN she prescribed bc for me and gave me a month's worth and a prescription for the following month. I filled the prescription and here I am like a dummy (I was scared!) I forgot to ask what I am supposed to do when I run out. Am I supposed to call her office and get a new prescription? Or am I supposed to schedule monthly visits (!?!?!). I guess I'm just really confused... please help?
And I guess this is a good chance for anyone to give me advice on bc? Taking the pill freaks me out. It take it every day at noon .. Can you stock up on bc? Can you? Any tips/strategies.. greatly appreciate it.
I hope I'm doing this right. Sorry if this is a silly question.
