Many colleges require students to have health insurance, whether it's a private health plan or health coverage offered by the university, and under the Affordable Care Act, all private insurances - as well as most student plans - must. These include:
- Barrier methods, like diaphragms and sponges
- Hormonal methods, like birth control pills and vaginal rings
- Implanted devices, like and the arm implant Nexplanon
- Emergency contraception (also known as the )
- Sterilization procedures
- Patient education and counseling
This may explain why more students are gravitating toward forms of contraception that would have otherwise been costly.

"An unplanned pregnancy can have a whole range of consequences that could interfere with someone's academic progress, as well as have an emotional and psychological impact on their lives, so it's good to have tools to make good decisions and control your own reproductive future."

Indeed, according to psychologist Mark Reinecke, department head at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago: "People feel that they need help when their usual ways of dealing with a problem no longer work." They then feel "overwhelmed, depressed and helpless". This question asked to the other reminds him then that he is not alone, that you are there to help him, to bring him your support.
Dr. Jocelyn Charnas, a psychologist at a private New York clinic adds that the effect of the question will depend on how it was asked. So, tell the other "can I help you?" will imply a closed response: "yes" or "no". While a "How can I help you" will open to a dialogue.

In truth, you simply make him understand that your ear is there, at disposal, if he wants to discuss, to empty his bag. And in doing so, you can help him see things more clearly, feel better, without you having to drown him with your good advice.When to release this magic phrase?
