Now more than ever we are committed to providing safe and effective reproductive healthcare services to our patients. This includes comprehensive contraceptive counseling and treatment as well as abortion services including first trimester medical and surgical abortion. We believe reproductive rights are human rights and we support patients who choose to become pregnant, patients who choose not to become pregnant and patients who choose to end a pregnancy.
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 (tubal ligation) or removed (salpingectomy). Intrauterine devices (IUDs) and Nexplanon are a great long-term, yet non-permanent form of contraception. These are inserted by your physician in the office and can stay in place three 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.
