The only method of birth control I've ever used is condoms, because I'm uncomfortable with using HBC, but I want to give it a try.
I'm in a long distance relationship now, so I barely ever see my boyfriend. He'll be visiting me on October 7th, so about week from now.
In order to get a prescription, I'd have to go into the campus Dr. for an exam. I have a few questions.
1. How long does it take for HBC to start working? and do I have to wait for a certain day to start? Is it too late for me to go in now?
2. Can you take HBC for like 1 month only, and then just quit taking it..?
3. Is there a specific type of HBC which will have limited symptoms? I know everyone reacts differently, but basically I don't want my boobs to grow at all, if that can be avoided.
4. How much do generic BC pills typically cost without insurance?
