On April 8, 2016, a new option was enacted by the Board of Pharmacy permitting (not requiring) pharmacists to dispense hormonal contraceptives without prescriptions. There are multiple steps involved, however: the pharmacist must conduct a patient interview along with a patient screening questionnaire, check or review a recent blood pressure, select the appropriate product, and communicate with the patient's care provider.

I have had the same roommate for two years and consider her a good friend of mine. I know this semester has been hectic, but my roommate tends to use this as an excuse for snapping on me. She does this to other people as well, ‘Ive noticed. Should I say something to her? Or Ignore it. What are ways I can be supportive of her through really stressful times?

I shaved the sides of my hair this semester (I’m a girl) and am nervous about my conservative family and community because I don’t know how they will react. I can always buy a wig (?) but want to practice being more confident while sporting my new do. Any advice for helping me prepare to handle the inevitable criticism? I love my family but know that we hold very different views. Is there anyway to reach a middle ground?

I’ve been dating a guy who is nice to me but I think he just wants sex. It’s confusing because I’ve dated other guys who only want physical and will make that clear, but this guy is still nice to me. How can I determine if he’s only in it for the physical?
I am really happy with my boyfriend whenever we are not fighting. We make each other laugh and smile. However whenever we fight, it is just the worst. I know that every couple fights, but sometimes I feel like we fight too much. Moreover, I get hurt during our fights - not physically but more on an emotional level. He would say “what is your problem”, “that was a stupid reason”, “you are selfish”, or “you are cheap”. I want to feel respected during the happy times and the fighting times.

So I haven’t dated in while and I think I might be interested in this guy I just met in my organization. Problem is I think I’m too scared of something because I feel like I have been rejecting myself. Telling myself if he had found me attractive he would have already approached me. I feel like I’m such a fool because I haven’t really tried talking to him. Maybe I’m being too hard on myself but I would really like to know the guy a bit more where do I start?
