News E-Visits Offer Access to Birth Control

SHARE

Are you sexually active and need a reliable birth control method? Are you considering taking birth control for the other benefits it can offer? 

The birth control pill and Nuva Ring medications are safe, simple ways to prevent pregnancy. They also have other benefits to women, including improving acne, making lighter and more regular periods, and improving menstrual cramps. They also have health benefits, including helping to reduce or prevent bone thinning, breast or ovarian cysts, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and more.

MyChart E-Visits offer convenient, online appointments if you need a prescription for birth control.   During your E-Visit, the provider will make sure you are a good candidate for birth control by reviewing your health history. If you are, the provider can help you get a birth control prescription for up to one year. This includes the oral pill, vaginal ring or the patch. Other contraception methods, like injections or IUDs, require an office visit. During your E-Visit, you will also receive counseling and education about your birth control.

E-Visits are available to Samaritan patients with a MyChart account Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sundays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Visit samhealth.org/MyChart to learn more or start your E-Visit today.
