Fortunately, there are more birth control options available than ever. This means our expert team of gynecologists can recommend the right option for you and your reproductive goals.
What types of birth control are available?
There are many different types of contraception that work in a variety of ways. When looking at your options, it can be helpful to consider whether you want your method to be hormonal or non-hormonal, short or long acting, and permanent or non-permanent. Some birth control comes in the form of a pill, injection, or implanted device. Some work by changing your body’s hormone patterns while others block fertilization or prevent it entirely. Some must be managed regularly while others can last for years. We can make sure you have the right information to make an informed choice.
How do I choose a contraceptive?
There are a lot of factors that your gynecologist can help you navigate in order to find the best choice. For instance, maybe you have a medical condition that prohibits you from hormonal methods. Maybe you travel frequently or are preoccupied with school or work, so you require a non-daily method. Maybe you plan to conceive soon and desire a short-term solution. Maybe a family is not on the agenda for many years, or ever. Maybe you need emergency contraception. Maybe you simply want an effective option that requires very little effort. Whichever the “maybe,” there is an option that can address your needs and concerns.
