Birth Control Q & A

When Should I Start Birth Control?

It depends on your reason for having an interest in birth control. Some women consider birth control well before they’re sexually active because they struggle with acne and have heard hormonal birth control medications can help, for example. 

To ensure you only get pregnant when you’re ready, it’s important that you get started with birth control before you become sexually active. 

Experts say that withdrawal (also called the pull-out method) has a 22% failure rate. Having a reliable form of birth control in place ensures your plans and timeline for having a family don’t get derailed. 

What Birth Control Options are Available?

The team at North Atlanta Women’s Specialists strives to give you access to every safe, effective form of birth control available today. 

With the broadest spectrum of choices possible, they ensure you can get the type of birth control that’s best for you right now and most closely aligns with your goals in the future. You can choose from:

  • The pill
  • The patch
  • Injections
  • Intrauterine devices (IUDs), hormonal or non-hormonal
  • Implants
  • Vaginal rings
  • Permanent birth control (sterilization surgeries)

 

If you want to learn more about any of these birth control options, don’t wait to make an appointment at North Atlanta Women’s Specialists. 

How Do I Know Which Birth Control is Right for Me?

The team at North Atlanta Women’s Specialists takes the time to talk with you about your current and future health and family goals. If you know you don’t want kids anytime soon, for example, they may recommend a long-lasting form of birth control like an IUD or a birth control implant. 

If you’re concerned about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), they can counsel you on the use of condoms. If you want hormone-free birth control, they suggest Paragard®, an IUD that uses copper instead of hormones to prevent pregnancy.

You have a variety of options, and the North Atlanta Women’s Specialists team works with you to find the one that’s right for you, answering any questions you may have, so you can make an educated decision about the type of birth control you choose.
