The vaginal ring (NuvaRing) is an insertable hormonal birth control method that needs to be remembered only once a month and is just as effective as the pill!

Condoms are important for preventing sexually transmitted infections (STIs), but STIs are only half the equation. For pregnancy prevention, it's time to think Beyond the Condom! Text "BtC" to 99222.

Beyond the Condom (BtC) is a pilot educational initiative created by a team at the University of South Florida College of Public Health, with funding support from the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy.

BtC educates young women about LARCs (no, not the bird): Long-acting reversible contraceptives. LARCs include the IUD, contraceptive implant, the shot, the patch, and NuvaRing. What's so great about these methods you ask? In general, they're long acting and require little-to-no attention (in some case lasting more than 10 years, and you don't have to remember to take a Pill everyday!), and they're much cheaper than the Pill!
