Who is a Candidate for Birth Control?
Though it is most often used to prevent pregnancy, some forms of contraception can be effective in reducing acne and treating certain menstrual issues, including heavy and painful periods. Not every form of contraception is ideal for everyone. It is important to understand your options and their differences. Within a thorough consultation, we will talk with you about your needs and concerns to recommend the best form of contraception for you.
Our Contraceptive Treatment Options
At Venus Restorative Health and Wellness Center, we offer a number of contraceptive options, depending on your needs and lifestyle, including:
Birth Control Pills: Several birth control pills are available that have various effects on hormone levels. During your initial consultation, we will talk with you about which birth control pill may be best for you and your needs.
Depo-Provera: This contraception option is an injection that is received every three months. It contains the hormone progesterone, which works to prevent ovulation.
Nexplanon: An implant that is placed within the arm, Nexplanon is a tiny, rod-like device that works to prevent pregnancy for up to four years. It is over 99% effective and is a great option for women looking for a longer-lasting form of contraception that does not require regular trips to the pharmacy or doctor.
Intrauterine Device (IUD): An IUD is a small device that is placed into the uterus. It works by preventing sperm from fertilizing an egg, either with or without the release of hormones. The various IUD options we offer include:
- Kyleena (hormonal)
