Contraception Q & A

What is Contraception?

Contraception prevents pregnancy during intercourse. You may use contraception temporarily when you aren’t ready to start a family yet or you want to avoid pregnancy for a while after having a child. If you’re done having children, you may opt for permanent contraception.

What Types of Contraception are Available?

A variety of types of contraception are available. Some of the most popular options include:

  • Oral birth control pills: Taken every day to stop ovulation and prevent pregnancy
  • Injections: Hormonal injections that prevent pregnancy for several months at a time
  • Implants: Usually placed in the arm, these offer long-term, reversible protection from pregnancy
  • IUDs: A removable device placed in the uterus to prevent pregnancy for an extended period.
  • Barrier contraceptives: Certain types of contraception, such as condoms and diaphragms, protect against pregnancy by creating a barrier between the sperm and the egg
  • Sterilization: A permanent protection for women who don’t want any more children

Which Contraception Method is Best?

Every method of contraception offers different advantages for patients. In addition, some contraceptives may cause side effects or put you at risk of certain complications.
