Using Hello Options
Whether you’re a healthcare provider or sexual health educator, Hello Options supports quality, person-centered contraception exploration and decision making.
To integrate Hello Options into your clinical practice, we recommend you:
1. Offer the tool to patients to touch and handle themselves.
2. Describe method color-coding:
Green: combined hormone methods (pill pack, patch, ring)
Purple: long-acting reversible contraception (hormonal and copper IUDs, implant, injection/shot)
Orange: non-hormonal sperm blocker (vaginal gel; not pictured)
Blue: barrier / STI prevention methods (external and internal condoms)
*Note: The central ring can be unscrewed to rearrange or detach individual methods.
3. Use Hello Greenlight tear sheets to support detailed, method-specific counseling and different learning styles. Invite patients to use their personal mobile device to scan the QR code on the back of the pill pack to access resources online or offer a print version, available for download here
