Birth Control Counseling Specialist
The decision to have a child is a critical one, and that’s why Dr. Cristiane Ennis at Premier Women’s Health discuss birth control with their patients. With nearly half of all pregnancies unintended, developing an informed plan is perhaps one the most important things we can help you do.
What is birth control counseling?
If you’re in your reproductive years, expect your doctor at Premier Women’s Health Center to counsel you on contraception needs, both now and in the future, to help you avoid the risk of an unintended pregnancy. And when you do decide to get pregnant, your doctor can help you have the healthiest pregnancy possible.
During birth control counseling, your doctor takes the time to educate you on contraceptives, both what’s available and the pros and cons of each. The doctor fills in any deficits in what you know and understand about reproductive health and clears up any misconceptions about preventing pregnancy. This also allows them to address any questions or concerns you may have about birth control.
What types of birth control does Premier Women’s Health Center offer?
If you’re in need of birth control, your doctor can review your health history and help you determine which kind of birth control best suits you and your needs, giving you the most effective protection possible. Some recommended birth control methods include:
- Birth control pills
- Nexplanon®, which is implanted into your arm
Your doctor’s recommendation is made based on:
- Your age
- Lifestyle habits
- Whether you’ve previously had children
- If you plan on having children in the near future
What happens if you have an IUD or implant and change your mind?
Your doctor at Premier Women’s Health Center is qualified to both place IUDs and remove them. If you have a long-lasting reversible contraceptive in place and are considering getting it removed, contact Dr. Cristiane Ennis at Premier Women’s Health Center to review the risks and benefits.
Are there nonhormonal birth control options?
If you’re looking for hormone-free birth control protection, talk to your doctor about your options. If you’re not planning on having any more children, they may recommend a non-hormonal IUD.
