Birth Control Q & A

What is birth control?

Birth control is used to prevent pregnancy, but each birth control method varies in its effectiveness.

Some forms of birth control have other benefits and serve additional purposes, such as reducing menstrual pain or protecting against sexually transmitted diseases.

Your Women’s Health Specialists doctor will discuss your options at your consultation, make sure you’re fully informed, and answer all your questions. It’s essential you take time to consider the right option for you.

You might have to try a couple of different methods before you find the best choice for you and your partner.

What are the different types of birth control?

Many different birth control options are available.

Birth control pill

The birth control pill is one of the most popular choices. It uses progestin and estrogen hormones.

IUDs

IUDs or intrauterine devices are especially effective at preventing pregnancy. Some of the hormone-releasing IUDs, such as the innovative Mirena®, can last up to five years. IUDs are small devices that are implanted into your uterus. Most secrete hormones.

  • Sponges
