What To Expect

Timeline


Once you have completed a telehealth consult for birth control, a prescription can be provided the same day and sent to a pharmacy of your choice, pending the results of your consultation. If you do not have health insurance or are choosing not to use your health insurance, we will review your options with you.




Treatment


Birth control commonly comes in a pill, patch or ring form. Each has its own specific way that it administers hormones to your body. If you do not know which one is best for you, no worries we will discuss this further at your visit.




Follow-Up


We will make a follow-up appointment within 1 to 3 months of being on your preferred method of birth control to review how things are going. Your providers at Beyond|Med are available to you for any questions after your visit. Click the "Patient Portal" link to the left to send secure messages that your providers will also answer through your secure online patient portal.




Testing


The only lab test that is commonly associated with the initiation of birth control is a pregnancy test. If you can provide information that is necessary to prove that you are not currently pregnant, this step may not be necessary. We will go through a series of questions to assess the safety of starting the birth control of your preference. You will also be asked for a recent blood pressure reading that was taken within 2 weeks of your visit. You can have your blood pressure taken at your local pharmacy or grocery store.
