some of the most health care resources and most progressive health policies in the country of Mexico. However, there are still social and economic barriers for many people, depending on their lives and circumstances. You can access many forms of contraception (birth control), including condoms, pills, injectables, shots and IUDs. Emergency contraception (the morning after pill) is available at pharmacies without a prescription, and there are no age restrictions.
