Welcome to the Washington and Lee contraception website. Follow the links below to learn more about the various types of birth control. College students who are sexually active should consider using a barrier method to prevent transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and a hormonal method to prevent pregnancy; so choosing a method of contraception is an important decision.

See the "Additional Information" page for information regarding birth control methods that do not work, guidelines for missing birth control pills, STIs, and Emergency Contraception.
