The purpose of this study is to evaluate the benefit of an on-campus birth control counseling and services clinic. Currently there are no health services that provide access to birth control located on the Mount Hood Community College (MHCC) campus. We are offering a temporary 'Birth Control Resource Center' for eligible students. All forms of birth control in this study are FDA approved.
During the study participants will undergo counseling to choose the method of birth control that is right for them. This will include watching an informational video and having a discussion with study staff. If participants choose pills, the patch the ring, or a diaphragm and do not have any contraindications to this method, they will receive a prescription for this method to be filled at the pharmacy of their choice. If participants choose Depo-Provera (the shot), they will receive their first shot on the day of their visit and a prescription for repeat shots every 3 months. If participants choose to have an IUD or Implant as their method of birth control, they will be randomized to one of two groups. There is a 50% chance of having the intrauterine device (IUD) or Implant placed immediately after the counseling session and a 50% chance of receiving a list of local clinics that can place the device at a later time.

Active Comparator: Non-LARC Group: Short Acting Method
All groups will receive the same standardized contraceptive counseling ("LARC forward counseling"). Participants who chose a short-acting hormonal method (e.g. contraceptive pills, ring, or patch) will receive a prescription to the pharmacy of their choice, as is the current practice for students who present for contraceptive services
Other: Prescription for Short-Acting Hormonal Contraception
Participants who chose a short-acting hormonal method (e.g. contraceptive pills, ring, or patch) will receive a prescription to the pharmacy of their choice
Active Comparator: Control Group: Referral for LARC Placement
All groups will receive the same standardized contraceptive counseling ("LARC forward counseling"). Randomized to referral for LARC placement to local clinic.
Other: Referral for Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC)
Referral to local clinic for LARC placement of choice (Mirena, Skyla, Paragard, Implanon, etc.)
Active Comparator: LARC Group: Same Day LARC Placement
All groups will receive the same standardized contraceptive counseling ("LARC forward counseling"). Randomized to same day LARC placement (intervention).
Drug: Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC)
Same day LARC placement (intervention) of Mirena, Skyla, Paragard, Implanon
- Number of Participants Reporting Ongoing Use and Satisfaction [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Proportion of Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) uptake among women, by group assignment. This will be evaluated based on participants' self-reported ongoing use and satisfaction by group assignment on the 3-month questionnaire after the initial visit. 3 months following placement of LARC device, initiation of short acting method, and those in the control group, participants will complete a questionnaire in order to assess ongoing use and satisfaction of their contraceptive method. This will be measured on the 3-month questionnaire.
