Three long-term contraceptive methods
- Posted on: May 15 2020
Are you tired of having to remember to take birth control pills each day? Are condoms interrupting the passion and making you rethink your current contraceptive choices? If you are in a long-standing relationship with your sexual partner and are interested in birth control options that provide more long-term protection, we encourage you to book an appointment at Columbus Women’s Care in the area of Canal Winchester, Ohio to discuss solutions. Many women who are interested in longer-lasting solutions can learn about the following options available to them through our facility:
- Intrauterine devices (IUDs) – many women find that the use of an IUD is a wonderful way to address protection from pregnancy for several years while remaining reversible when they are ready to conceive. IUDs include both hormonal and non-hormonal options. Common brand products used in our office include Skyla, Kyleena, Paragard, Liletta, and Mirena. IUD’s can last anywhere from three to 10 years, depending on the type.
- Nexplanon implants – another option is that of the hormonal contraceptive implant called Nexplanon. This implant is inserted into the arm and provides birth control benefits for approximately three years. The injection is done right in our office and is a simple procedure that can provide years of benefits for those who are looking to delay or avoid conception and pregnancy.
- Tubal ligation – for patients who are done having children or want to avoid conceiving entirely, tubal ligation may be recommended by our doctors at Columbus Women’s Care in Canal Winchester, OH. This method provides permanent birth control as it completely prevents the fertilization of a woman’s eggs. The procedure is done laparoscopically to either block, seal, or completely remove the fallopian tubes. Tubal ligation is performed easily in our practice in a relatively speedy, minimally-invasive procedure.
