Plus the doctor has to decide which Birth Control is best for you since not all birth control pills are the same.

Go to your nearest family planning clinic if you dont want to go to your doctor and exolain things to them they will them prescribe it if its needed and it is all private and confidential

You cannot go to a pharmacy to pick up birth control pills without a prescription.

If you go to a planned parenthood center my doctor told me herself that you can go there and get birth control pills for free and confidentially,

What should you do if the condom broke and you are on birth control and z-pack?

I would go to your doctor or a health clinic (such as Planned Parenthood) to get the morning after pill. Sometimes you can just take a certain amount of your birth control and that will be equal to what Plan B is, but I would recommend still talking to your doctor because it is different for every type of the pill. If you are over 18 you can also get the morning after pill (Plan B) over the counter at any pharmacy. It is only effective if taken within 72 hours after the incident. I would definitely look into this because your birth control is ineffective if you are taking an antibiotic such as the Z-pack. Hope this helps!

Can you use the birth control patch if you have migraines?

When it comes to migraines, birth control can be tricky. For some people, being on birth control can cause more migraines. For some people, being on birth control can reduce their migraines. For some people, there is no change at all. There is a small risk, that birth control can cause strokes. People who have classic migraines (or migraine with aura) also have this small risk. So being on birth control can increase the risk for stroke that those type of migraines already increase the chance of. It is a small risk, but it is something to be aware of. It is just like being aware that if you smoke while on birth control, you increase your chance of stroke. Just another factor to discuss with your doctor.
