When you come to Findlay Women’s Care to get birth control, you’ll have several types to choose from, such as the following:
Since there are so many to choose from, your doctor will help you go through the pros and cons of each so that you can find the most suitable type.
It depends on several factors, such as whether you want to have children one day and how effective you want your birth control to be. Personal preferences, such as comfort and convenience, are also important to consider. For example, you might prefer an IUD if you’re worried about remembering to take a pill every day. If you have any underlying health conditions, this might also affect the type of birth control you can safely use. Your doctor will help you choose the right form for your situation.
If you use condoms, then you’re protected from STDs. Other forms of birth control only protect you from becoming pregnant. If you have multiple partners, for example, you should plan on using condoms along with another form of birth control for better protection against unplanned pregnancies. Condoms are highly effective at protecting against STDs, but they’re not as effective as other types of birth control when it comes to preventing pregnancy.
Most types of birth control are safe for many women to use. However, certain types do have risks that you’ll need to consider. For example, copper IUDs can cause more cramping and bleeding during periods, although this tends to stop within a few months. Other forms of birth control, such as those that have estrogen, might not be safe if you have a high risk of blood clots.
Your doctor at Findlay Women’s Care will talk to you about birth control risks to make sure you choose one that’s safe for you. If you need birth control, please contact the office or book online to set up an appointment with Dr. Doty-Armstrong, Dr. Hochstettler, or Dr. Perkins.
