Birth control refers to any method you use to prevent pregnancy, which may range from prescription medication to condoms to the ovulation calendar method. However, certain types of birth control are more effective at preventing pregnancy than others.
Dr. Senchani and her team at Women’s Health Specialists of Central Florida specialize in family planning and can review all the birth control methods, the ones that are most effective at preventing pregnancy, and the methods that make the best choice for your lifestyle.
The providers at Women’s Health Specialists of Central Florida are experts in women’s gynecological health and offer many birth control options to meet your family planning needs. Some of the contraceptive methods available include:
The IUD is a birth control device that is placed in your uterus. It works by altering the movement of sperm to stop it from reaching your egg. IUDs are one of the most effective methods of birth control and can prevent pregnancy anywhere from 3-10 years, depending on the type of IUD used.
Nexplanon is a birth control implant that’s placed under the skin in your arm. It’s a long-acting hormonal form of birth control that works by preventing ovulation and stopping sperm from reaching your egg. Like the IUD, Nexplanon is a very effective form of birth control that can prevent pregnancy for up to three years.
The Depo-Provera shot is a hormonal birth control that works by preventing ovulation. One shot can prevent pregnancy for up to three months.
Birth control pills are short-acting hormonal forms of birth control that you take daily. The pill works by preventing you from ovulating.
The types of birth control offered by Dr. Senchani and her team don’t protect you from sexually transmitted diseases. If you’re sexually active with more than one partner, you may want to add condoms in addition to your birth control for extra protection.
Dr. Senchani and her team can help you determine the type of birth control that best suits you, which may depend on your future pregnancy plans and gynecological health.
