There are many different forms of birth control available, and your choice depends on your personal preferences, lifestyle, and health needs. At the Center for Women’s Health, the skilled providers offer counseling to help you find the birth control that’s right for you, whether that’s oral contraceptives, hormonal injections, intrauterine devices, or a permanent method such as tubal ligation. Make an appointment by calling any of their offices in Sugar Land or Richmond, Texas, or book one online for help in making an informed contraception decision.
Each form of contraception has a different level of efficacy, but this is not the only factor you weigh when deciding on the right method for you. Ask yourself:
Certain birth control pills may also offer additional benefits, such as lighter bleeding and less cramping during your periods. Your practitioner at the Center for Women’s Health helps you answer each of these questions to determine the best birth control option.
Contraception comes in many forms and usually falls into one of the following categories:
Your lifestyle, sexual habits, and desire for convenience dictate which of these methods most appeal to you.
Male and female condoms are the only forms of birth control that offer some level of protection against sexually transmitted diseases (STD).
However, condoms are not as reliable as other methods of contraception in preventing pregnancy. So, if you have multiple partners, it is best to use dual contraception: a condom to keep you safe from STDs and an IUD, pill, or another method to prevent pregnancy.
