We provide a full range of contraceptive choices for our patients.  Options include:

Traditional oral contraceptive pills that are taken daily and result in a monthly period.  Very low doses are available for patients who would like to limit the amount of hormones they take.

Contraceptive pills that are taken daily, but result in a period every three months.

Contraceptive patch that is worn on a weekly basis. Normal monthly periods are experienced.

A ring (the Nuva Ring) which is worn vaginally for 21 days.  The patient can expect to have a monthly period.

Implanon/Nexplanon, which is a 4cm progesterone based rod that is placed in the patient's arm.  This method is approved to provide contraception for 3 years and the most common side effect is irregular vaginal bleeding.

Mirena Intrauterine Device, which is a progesterone based IUD that is approved for 5 years of contraception and that is commonly used to treat patients with heavy bleeding.
