Birth control or contraception is the process of preventing pregnancy by methods involving contraceptives and/or implantation. The reasons for using birth control can be many, ranging from family planning to improving menstrual bleeding.
Trust Women’s Healthcare offers a range of contraceptive services in Brooklyn for women of any age. Contraception treatment can be both reversible and permanent. Our birth control specialists and medical staff can help you determine the best contraception treatment for you.
There are many different types of birth control, and choosing one can be both daunting and overwhelming. Common contraceptives include:
- Intrauterine device (IUD)
- Hormonal ring
- Oral contraceptives (birth control pill)
Choosing a contraceptive or birth control implant
Determining the right contraceptive can be a very personal decision depending on various factors, including your age, sexual health, sexual frequency, future pregnancy wishes, and existing medical conditions.
Each contraception comes with its risks, efficacy, and side effects, and choosing the one that works best for you should be done in consultation with an experienced doctor. Depending on your physiology and the contraceptive method, side effects can include mood changes, vaginal bleeding, blood clots, nausea, breast tenderness, decreased libido, and cramping. Additionally, studies have shown that birth control pills can raise a woman’s risk of high blood pressure and blood clots, increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Additionally, without careful selection and proper maintenance of implants, it can also lead to vaginal infection and complicate things further.
