There are many types of birth control available. We offer a variety of contraceptive methods, including the pill, patch, ring, shot, IUD, and implant.
People use birth control for a variety of reasons, whether it be to prevent pregnancy, regulate periods or bleeding, treat a medical condition, or a number of other valid reasons.
Making decisions about birth control is not easy – there are many things to think about. Learning about birth control methods you or your partner can use and talking with your provider are good ways to get started.
There is no “best” method of birth control. Each method has its pros and cons, and everyone has their own unique preferences for which method they like to use. The birth control method you choose should take into account your overall health, sexual preferences (your sexual orientation, how often you have sex, the number of sexual partners you have, etc.), if you want to have children, how effective each method is at preventing pregnancy, any potential side effects, and your comfort level with using the method.
