  • NEVER!
    I got an IUD ♥♥♥

    As for the pill, usually docs give a prescription for a year. Generally they give samples for a couple of months to see how your body responds to it, then they give a script.

  • Okay, I have to get the pap every year and they check the IUD placement.

  • When I was on them, I went once a year - for my yearly pap smear and go the prescription then.

  • Well for me never because I am fixed now. When I was on BC, I would go in every few months since I have to change it every few months due to how my body handles it. My BFF just goes in once a year for her yearly checkup and asks for another script.

  • Never because after I endured three c-sections my husband got a vasectomy. Before that it was annually with the exam.
