We will help you chose the method of birth control that best fits your needs.
IF YOU CHOOSE THE BIRTH CONTROL PILL, we will recommend the ones that have the lowest amount of hormones and the least side effects. We will provide you a free sample of your preferred birth control pills or Lo Loestrin.
Please visit http://www.loloestrin.com for full prescribing Information.
Alternatively, you may consider the NuvaRing, a vaginal ring that releases hormones and you insert deep into your vagina once a month and remove after three weeks.To learn more about the NuvaRing, call 1-877-NUVARING (1-877-688-2746).
Some patients prefer longer acting methods such as Depo-Provera, which is an injection that is given every three months; the Implanon, which consists of three subdermal inserts that may be used for up to three years; or two brands of the intra-uterine device (IUD), namely:
(A) The Mirena IUD which releases the hormone levonorgestrel over a period of up to five years For additional information, please call the Mirena Hotline at (866)-647-3646.
(B) The Paragard IUD which contains no hormones, has a lower cost, and lasts up to 10 years. For additional information, you may visit http://www.paragard.com
The IUD is usually inserted 2 or 3 weeks after an abortion, or during or shortly after a menstrual period. The Paragard IUD is effective for emergency contraception if inserted within seven days after an unprotected intercourse.All Women's Clinic will provide a same-day appointment to insert an IUD for emergency contraception.
Studies on the "ABSTINENCE-ONLY" sexual education programs have shown that this method is ineffective and possibly harmful.
Theoretically, the safest and most effective method of birth control method is complete sexual abstinence. Complete sexual abstinence will protect you against the possibility of pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
However, in the real world, "abstinence only" programs do not work, except for a few exceptionally motivated people and some people who don't really need to use contraception (advanced age, very infrequent sexual intercourse, etc). They are against the use of modern contraception based of dogmatic beliefs.
The evidence is irrefutable that spending for abstinence-only education in our schools and communities is not only wasteful but also these programs place young women's health at risk by denying them effective contraception.
A 2004 study by the House Committee on Government Reform, conducted at the request of Representative Henry Waxman (D-CA) found that over 80% of the curricula used in the largest federally funded abstinence-only programs contained "false, misleading, or distorted information about reproductive health".
Another two reports released on June 22, 2009 by the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health; and the Guttmacher Institute, revealed a rise in teen pregnancy rates in 2006 and 2007 and fewer teens using contraception.
