"Dr. Ranjan was absolutely amazing! She was through and took her time. It didn’t feel like a drive through checkout. Unfortunately, I didn’t get my physical results back and when I called to get them, I had to leave over five messages (not exaggerating) and I never got a call back. Two months later, I was on my way to the office since they wouldn’t pick up the phone or return my messages and to my surprise, someone actually picked up."- I.R. / Google / May 12, 2021
how many types of birth control are there?
There are a wide variety of birth control methods and each presents their own risks and benefits. The most common types of contraceptives include:
- Oral medications
- Hormone injections
- Implant devices (IUD, vaginal ring)
- Protective barriers (condoms, diaphragm, cervical cap)
- Spermicide (protective gel, foam, cream)
- Natural methods (withdrawal, fertility awareness, breastfeeding)
- Permanent methods (tubal ligation, vasectomy)
HOW DO I FIND THE BEST BIRTH CONTROL FOR ME?
Deciding on a birth control method is extremely personal. While Dr. Ranjan will guide you through the pros and cons of each type of contraceptive, only you can make the decision on which method is best for you. Each birth control is different, and in many cases, most women try several kinds before they decide on which one is ideal for them. It's also a normal practice to use a combination of contraceptives to provide optimal protection.
