In brief: Family doctors can
The vast majority of family doctors will be wiling to prescribe birth control for you.
The shots, called depo, are one option for birth control. The shots contain a hormone called Progesterone that prevents pregnancy, and they need to be given every three months. A family doctor should be able to help you choose the best birth control method for you.
