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.
Nest Family Medicine is pleased to offer birth control counseling to women of all ages. If you aren't ready to get pregnant, birth control can provide the protection you need until you are prepared to start a family. Call our clinic in Plano, TX to set up an appointment with Dr. Ranjan. During this time, we can discuss all your options, pricing, and insurance.
