what is birth control?

Birth control is any type of practice that protects a woman from getting pregnant. This can be achieved through prescription medication, devices, and natural family planning. At Nest Family Medicine, family practitioner Dr. Priti Ranjan has helped women of all ages to determine which birth control method is best for them. If you are sexually active and want to prevent or postpone pregnancy, set up a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Ranjan today. These appointments are completely confidential and can provide the professional guidance you need to move forward in guarding your health.

types of birth control

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)

selecting your contraceptive

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.
