How long does the entire exam for birth control pills last?

“How long does the entire exam for birth control pills last? Do i have to get the pills or can i get the shot? I’m under 18, what do i bring to my first appointment?”

A: “If you are 15 or younger, you need to make an appointment for a separate orientation and education session first, which lasts about 30 minutes. After you attend the orientation, you can schedule an exam. If you are 16 or 17, you can schedule an exam for the same day as your orientation and education. An exam lasts approximately 1-1 1/2 hours. Whether or not you get birth control pills or the shot is your decision. If you have Medicaid, bring your card with you.”
