In some cases, yes. Birth control is part of the family planning process. But, it also involves spacing pregnancies so you’re not mentally or physically overwhelmed. Family planning is not just about controlling the size of your family, it’s about managing your health. You may also discuss complex medical conditions that affect your ability to get pregnant or carry a baby to term. Family planning may also involve compassionate counseling following miscarriage and guidance regarding unplanned pregnancies.
The doctors at Green Valley OB/GYN offer contraceptive services, including oral medications, patches, rings and IUD, as well as other options. The doctors will consult with you, discuss your plans, and review your health history to determine options that are best for your needs and situation.
A hysterectomy, an IUD, or abstinence are almost guaranteed ways to prevent pregnancy. Other reliable methods include birth control pills, transdermal patches, breastfeeding, depo-provera shots or a vaginal ring. Less effective options available include emergency contraceptive pills, the withdrawal method, condoms, the sponge, a diaphragm or spermicides. The doctors can discuss with you the pros and cons of each measure so you can make an informed choice..
Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC), is an option for some women. These include IUDs and implants. The University School of Washington explains that these LARC methods are considered to be 20 times more effective than the pill, patch or ring in preventing pregnancy. You won’t accidentally skip a dose or fail to put in your device. Semi-permanent birth control is a serious consideration, however. If you’re considering it, be honest with Dr. Tyre and Dr. Torres as you consult about the possibility of using one of these methods.
