The New Birth Control Mandate Is Here—This Is What You Need To Know

Whether you’re switching from pill to patch or have already found your tried-and-true method, you’re likely on some kind of birth control—62% of US women of childbearing age use a form of it. But with so many types on the market, it can be difficult to determine what works best for your body. They all have their drawbacks: Some can lead to unpleasant mood shifts, while others cause breakouts and weight fluctuation. Beyond that, not all birth control is cost-effective, with implants and IUDs running hundreds of dollars—and maybe even more so now that the Trump administration has officially rolled back Obama-era contraception requirements. As the future of birth control coverage remains contentious, we’ve compiled a list of your options (along with their pros and cons) to ease your decision-making process.
