There are many different permanent and non-permanent forms of birth control. If you’ve completely finished having children and are sure you don’t want to be pregnant again, permanent forms of birth control include having your tubes tied or removed. Intrauterine devices (IUDs) are a great long-term, yet non-permanent form of contraception. These are inserted by your physician and can be left in place for five to ten years. There are also a number of non-permanent forms of birth control suitable for women who are not interested in conceiving “right now”. Hormonal contraception comes in many forms, such as a pill you take every day, a patch that is changed once a week or a vaginal ring that is replaced every month. Barrier forms of contraception like condoms or a diaphragm are good options for women who cannot take hormones.
Your doctor knows you best so schedule an appointment to discuss which of these birth control methods is best suited for you.
