I would like to know if it's good to be on birth control pills at the age of 24 since I don't want to get pregnant now and also which kind of birth control pill is appropriate

HI Mariner,

Thank you for being a part of the EmpowHER community and sharing your question.

Only you can determine whether or not it's good for you to be on birth control.   I can say that it is the best pregnancy prevention method outside of abstinence of course.

Do you have specific concerns associated with your age and birth control?

 Here are some links that might be helpful:

As for which birth control is appropriate, you should consult with your doctor.  Here is a resource for you to do you homework prior to your appointment:

I hope this helps.

Be well,
