Hi! I went to the dr today for a physical and he did my pap and all that jazz as well. Seeing as I have had issues with spotting and irregular periods, he wanted me to read over some pamphlets about considering birth control pills to regulate my period. If I decide to try BC, can I just call him and request an rx? I don't want to find the time to make another appt and pay a second co-pay, especially since I am up to date with my pap and sti screenings. thanks!

That is really going to depend on the policies of that particular office. You can give the office a call, ask to speak to the nurse or whoever handles these kinds of questions (generally not the person who answers the phone) and ask what you'll need to do since you had your exam already and are just taking time to decide if you want the prescription or not.
