Just talk to your doctor today.
Your doctor can tell you about ParaGard®: the only reversible
birth control that’s both highly effective and hormone free.
If you and your doctor decide it’s the right choice for you,
your doctor will prescribe it for you. (P.S.: It’s covered by
many insurance plans!)
Start the conversation.
Make a list of questions to ask your doctor and details you’d like to tell him or her about your lifestyle and what you’re looking for when it comes to birth control.

Consult your doctor. Have a chat to see if hormone-free ParaGard® is right for you. If it is, your doctor will check with your insurance company for payment and precertification, then order it for you.
Set the date. Call your doctor to set up an appointment to have ParaGard® placed. Your doctor will prescribe it for you and have it waiting when you come back.
Get it? Got it. Good! Your doctor commonly places ParaGard® during a routine office visit that only takes a few minutes. Once in place, ParaGard® will start working immediately.
Check in. You’ll return to your doctor a month later to make sure that ParaGard® is properly in place. Your doctor will also guide you through the simple monthly self-checks you will do at home and answer any questions you have.
Enjoy! In a few steps you just may be able to make birth control a hormone-free, hassle-free choice that fits your life.
