Birth Control Q&A

What is birth control?

Birth control, also called contraception, is a collection of methods that prevent you from getting pregnant. There are significant differences between the various methods, and all depend on your ability to use them correctly. The team at Women’s Care of Beverly Hills can teach you about every option and how to use them. 

When you discuss your birth control preferences with the team at Women’s Care of Beverly Hills, they ask for details about your lifestyle, your health, and any plans you have of getting pregnant in the future. The team makes recommendations based on the information you give them. 

Certain forms of birth control have benefits aside from preventing pregnancy. For example, hormonal birth control techniques can help regulate your periods or control acne. Condoms help prevent sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Information like this might influence your decision too. 

What are my options for birth control?

The team at Women’s Care of Beverly Hills can answer all your questions about how various forms of birth control work. During your next visit, they can teach you more about common birth control methods like:

  • Oral contraceptives
  • Copper intrauterine devices (IUDs)
  • Hormonal IUDs
  • Hormonal implants
  • Vaginal rings
  • Injections
  • Condoms

Some people choose to use condoms alongside other types of birth control to prevent pregnancy with the additional benefit of preventing the spread of STDs. 

How should I choose my birth control?

There’s a lot to consider while selecting a form of birth control for long-term use. It’s not uncommon for people to try a few different types before settling on one they find convenient and effective. 

The team at Women’s Care of Beverly Hills can help you make your decision while accounting for factors like:

  • Frequency of use
  • Rate of effectiveness
  • Convenience
  • Permanence
  • How often you have sex
  • How many sexual partners you have

You should also take your own preferences and tendencies into consideration. If you have difficulty adopting a consistent daily routine, for example, you might decide on a birth control method other than the pill.
