Birth Control Education

One-on-one educational birth control sessions with an Alice! Health Promotion professional staff member are available. Sessions are available for currently enrolled Columbia University students. In the session, students will have the opportunity to explore birth control options with an Alice! Health Promotion staff member and ask questions prior to meeting with a healthcare provider. This session is not a substitute for working with a medical provider. No prescriptions can be obtained during this session.

This session is appropriate for students who have never used birth control or are currently using birth control and wish to discuss alternative birth control options. Partners of someone who is or plans to use birth control are also welcome, but must be a Columbia University student. Please contact the Alice! Health Promotion office at 212-854-5453 or to schedule an appointment.

The Peer Advocates at WHAP (Women's Health Advocacy Project) are also available to discuss birth control during free and confidential peer counseling sessions. WHAP counselors provide a supportive environment to talk about sex and sexual health, and offer accurate information on birth control, gynecologic health, sexually transmitted infections, pleasure and communication, and more. Counseling sessions are open to people of all gender identities at Columbia, including students, staff, faculty, and partners. No appointment is necessary - visit during walk-in hours.
