New Birth Control Prescriptions

Many methods of contraception are available at UHS. You may now start, refill, or renew birth control oral contraceptives, patches, or rings without an appointment by sending a secure message to the Pharmacy eTang messaging.

If you would like general information about the options available at UHS, a great first step would be to make a free health education appointment (this is a counseling visit only). If you are ready for a prescription or to start the process of obtaining an IUD, diaphragm, DepoProvera, or implant, please schedule an appointment online with a clinician or call the appointment office at (510) 642-2000.
