To provide you with appropriate options for birth control, the staff at Inspire Ob/Gyn, LLC offers the most popular choices in birth control. These options include:
If you're looking for a long-term, low-maintenance form of birth control, copper IUDs are a great option that doesn't rely on hormones.
Choosing the right birth control is an important decision, and your provider works with you to ensure you select the best method for your needs, your health, and your long-term plans.
The Inspire Ob/Gyn, LLC gynecology team reviews your medical history and existing health to determine if hormonal birth control methods are safe for you. If so, they can prescribe oral pills, a hormonal IUD, or injectable birth control.
If you're unable to tolerate hormones, your Inspire Ob/Gyn, LLC physician can recommend other options for preventing pregnancy. These options may include condoms or a nonhormonal IUD, which uses copper to prevent sperm from traveling to eggs.
Permanent sterilization is an option if you're sure you're done having children. Your provider discusses your family plans thoroughly before recommending a tubal ligation.
The Inspire Ob/Gyn, LLC team takes time to discuss your family plans and your overall health. Depending on your desire for children now or in the future, your provider can recommend options for birth control that best fits your needs.
If you decide to have the birth control implant or an IUD, your doctor discusses what to expect during the implantation process. The team can perform an in-office insertion of an IUD or implant during a minor procedure. They can also give a birth control injection during your appointment.
You may need follow-up appointments to ensure your birth control is working properly and not interfering with your health. The team also monitors the effectiveness of birth control through routine visits and can discuss your options for stopping birth control when you wish to become pregnant.
The Inspire Ob/Gyn, LLC team provides additional resources to protect your sexual health, including recommendations for preventing sexually transmitted diseases. Most birth control methods require the additional use of condoms to protect you from infection. This is especially important if you're active with more than one partner or have other STD risk factors.
