Today, women have many options when it comes to birth control, sometimes making it difficult to decide which option to use. At Louisiana Women’s Healthcare, our team of physicians can help you determine the type of birth control that best fits your stage in life, health issues and reproductive goals.
Birth control, or contraception, is any way in which you prevent pregnancy. Birth control methods may work in a number of different ways.
The physicians of Louisiana Women’s Healthcare are proud to offer the full range of birth control options to help you make the best choice for your family planning goals.
You know birth control can help you avoid getting pregnant, but many hormonal birth control methods (the pill, some IUDs, patches, and implants) offer other benefits including:
Birth control options may offer you some benefits besides pregnancy prevention, but they do not protect you from STDs.
Taking birth control now will not hurt your chance of getting pregnant in the future. All reversible birth control methods will help prevent pregnancy while you’re using them, but none have long-lasting effects on your ability to get pregnant when you stop.
Contraception is a highly personal choice, and one that can have a significant bearing on a woman’s future. The physicians at Louisiana Women’s Healthcare are here to help you understand all of your birth control options so that you can make an informed decision.
