I Heard that Some Other Girls Go on Birth Control for Reasons Other Than Not Having a Baby.


I heard that some other girls go on birth control for reasons other than not having a baby.

There are many other reasons to use birth control besides pregnancy prevention. Some girls use birth control to regulate and decrease the pain associated with their periods. Other girls take it to help stop migraines or get rid of acne. In fact, more than 30% of girls who take birth control start taking it for some reason other than to prevent pregnancy.

If you think you need birth control for some reason other than birth control, visit a health center.
