Birth Control Q & A
What birth control options are available?
The Complete Healthcare for Women staff offers a number of birth control options and contraceptive management services to accommodate your health needs and ensure your safety. Options include:
- Birth control pills
- Extended use pills
- Depo Provera injections
The team also offers in-office insertion and removal services for the intrauterine device (IUD) both hormonal and non-hormonal as well as Nexplanon.
If you’re interested in a permanent method of birth control, the skilled medical team provides surgical sterilization procedures, including tubal ligation and tubal removal.
How does NuvaRing work?
NuvaRing contains estrogen and progestin, two female reproductive hormones, that work together to prevent unwanted pregnancy.
NuvaRing is self inserted into your vagina, the device provides continuous, low-dose hormones to effectively prevent conception.
NuvaRing works similarly to the birth control pill, but with added convenience because you don’t need to remember to take it every day. Instead, you use NuvaRing on a four-week cycle, keeping it in place for three weeks then removing it for one week.
What if I can’t tolerate hormones?
Some women are not able to safely use hormonal birth control due to their age or underlying medical conditions.
The staff at Complete Healthcare for Women can also provide non-hormonal birth control options, including:
- Intrauterine Device
Copper IUDs are also a highly effective method of birth control that don’t contain hormones. A non-hormonal IUD is a small piece of flexible plastic shaped like a T that has copper wrapped around it. Your doctor inserts the IUD, via the cervical canal into your uterus. The copper changes the way sperm travel, preventing them from meeting the egg for fertilization.
The copper IUD can also provide emergency contraception if inserted within five days after unprotected sex. The IUD can then be left in place to provide ongoing contraception.
The Complete Healthcare for Women medical team also recommends using condoms even with other forms of birth control to prevent sexually transmitted disease.
Which birth control option is right for me?
Determining which birth control is right for you is a personal decision between you and your Complete Healthcare for Women doctor. The team reviews your medical history and current health to determine your options.
Your doctor also discusses lifestyle factors that influence your birth control options, such as how many partners you have, your ability to remember to take pills, and if you plan to have a family in the short-term or long-term.
If you’re considering permanent birth control, your Complete Healthcare for Women doctor can discuss your decision and offer resources to ensure the surgery is right for you.
