PREVENTATIVE CARE

There are many birth control options available today, and the choices can seem confusing.

Below are some options that are available in contraception. Any of the providers at TotalCare for Women are prepared to consult with their patients to help them decide which form of birth control is right for them. This list can help you decide which method would best fit your lifestyle:

Contraceptive Services Available

Hormonal Contraceptives work by preventing the release of an egg from ovaries into the uterus, and may also make the uterus an “unfriendly” environment for sperm. While most women know about the birth control pill, there are other hormonal birth control methods that are now available.

  • The Patch
  •  Oral Contraceptive (The Pill)
  •  Contraceptive Injections (Depo Provera)
  •  Contraceptive Implant (Nexplanon)
  •  Progestin- Releasing Intrauterine Device: IUD (MirenaSkylaKyleena, Liletta)
  •  Vaginal Ring

Non-hormonal Contraceptives prevent pregnancy by providing a barrier against sperm, or by interfering with sperm movement, or by creating an “unfriendly” environment for sperm. These methods do not use hormones, so they do not interfere with your natural reproductive cycle.

  • Female Condom
  • Intrauterine Device or IUD (ParaGard)
  • Spermicides
  • Vaginal Barriers (Diaphragm, Cervical Cap)
