Getting contraception is easier than ever! UHS offers options including video visits and e-consultations.

The only contraceptive methods that require an examination are the diaphragm for fitting and the IUD for insertion procedure. 

If you want a pelvic exam during your visit, schedule your appointment for when you are not menstruating or when your menstrual flow is very light.

Your health care provider may recommend a Routine Women's Health Exam, STI Assessment and Pap test, and/or contraceptive management during your visit.


The following methods are available by prescription at UHS:

For Intrauterine device (IUD) or Implant, you have several options to learn about the method, after which you may schedule an appointment for insertion: 

  • Read here about IUD (PDF) or Implant (PDF) OR
  • Call UHS to receive the same information via the patient portal (you must have a patient portal account) OR
  • Schedule a video visit (available only for currently enrolled U-M students, and you will need a portal account, and you will use your mobile phone or iPad for the video visit) OR
  • Schedule an in-person consultation

For the shot (Depo Provera), oral contraceptive pills (the pill), the patch or the vaginal ring, you have two options to learn about the method and get a prescription:

  • Schedule a video visit (available only for currently enrolled U-M students, and you will need a patient portal account, and you will use your mobile phone or iPad for the video visit) OR
