Birth Control FAQs

What birth control medications do you have?

Pretty much everything!

How much is it?

That depends on your insurance coverage for prescription drugs. If you choose not to submit your prescription through your insurance, you will find our prices are very competitive with outside pharmacies.

Do you have Plan B?

Yes, but you need to bring your NU WildCARD.

What should I do if I miss taking a birth control pill?

Consult the patient information provided with your pack.  If you have any questions, contact the Health Service at 847.491.8100.

What affect do antibiotics have on my oral contraceptives?

Certain antibiotics can decrease the effectiveness of oral contraceptives. Please consult with the pharmacist to determine if another method of protection should be used for the cycle during which antibiotics are taken.
