Presription Discount Card

Presription Savings Card

Medicationdiscountcard.com focuses on the importance of safe-sex practices and the avoidance of unwanted pregnancy by spotlighting coupons for prescription contraceptives.

February 14-21 is National Condom Week, created to help educate youth on the multiple dangers associated with unprotected sex. Humor is often used to carry the message across, but unprotected sex can have very real and serious consequences, including unwanted pregnancies and the risk for contracting a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Medicationdiscountcard.com focuses on the importance of safe-sex practices and the avoidance of unwanted pregnancy by spotlighting coupons for prescription contraceptives.

Combination Birth Control Medication

Combination birth control pills contain two female hormones, progestin and estrogen. These hormones prevent pregnancy by suppressing ovulation (egg release) in females, while also changing the uterine lining and cervical mucus. These changes make it more difficult for sperm cells to join with an egg, thus causing impregnation. Combination birth control pills are sold under a variety of brand names and strengths. LoEstrin 1.5/30 discount coupons and Estrostep FE coupons are available at Medicationdiscountcoupons.com to use with your prescription.

Progestin-Only Birth Control Medication

Although Progestin-only medications work in a similar manner to combination birth control pills, they use only the hormone, progestin, as their active ingredient. This makes the medicine safer for those women who are prone to certain side effects, such as blood clots. The medicine must be taken at exactly the same time each day. The difference of just a few hours can render progestin-only contraceptives ineffective. Micronor discount cards can save you money on your prescription at the pharmacy.

Extended-Cycle Birth Control Medication

Extended-cycle birth control medications suppress menses (periods) for women, sometimes eliminating it altogether for periods of time. The constant influx of hormones provided by these medications keep the uterine lining very thin, which then decreases the amount of tissue expelled during menses. Lybrel® coupons and Seasonale® discount cards are freely available to print out at Medicationdiscountcard.com.

Emergency Birth Control Medication (Morning-after Pills)

Morning-after pills prevent pregnancy by stopping the ovaries from releasing eggs. If sperm cannot meet with an egg, pregnancy is impossible. Emergency Birth Control can be used to prevent pregnancy up to five days after unprotected sex, though its effectiveness is increased if used sooner rather than later. Anyone can print a Plan B One-Step coupon to lower the cost of this medication at the pharmacy.

According to a published study in 2011, the CDC reports that 49 percent of pregnancies were unintended in 2006. This percentage saw a small increase from previous years. The CDC also reported that, for women under the age of 19, more than four out of five pregnancies were unintended.
