Birth control, also called contraception or family planning, is designed to safely prevent pregnancy.
Different types of birth control prevent women from getting pregnant in different ways. Some use hormones to change how a woman’s body functions whereas others involve the use of medical devices to prevent conception from taking place.
Types of birth control include:
Choosing the right birth control is a personal decision based on your needs and goals for your family. The caring and experienced physicians at the Center for Women’s Health can help you select the birth control method that’s right for you.
We work closely with you to determine which options best suit your medical needs, beliefs, preferences, personal goals, and lifestyle.

Intrauterine contraception is an implant that prevents conception by preventing sperm from reaching your egg. ParaGard IUDs are copper-based to, and other types of IUDs use hormones. IUDs are also used to treat heavy and/or painful periods.
The Center for Women’s Health offers women a choice with a variety of IUDs:
Tubal ligation is a minimally invasive procedure that prevents conception by permanently blocking your fallopian tubes. If you decide this is the best method of birth control for your family-planning goals, your physician at the Center for Women’s Health can perform an in-office tubal ligation using Essure implants or treat you at the hospital.
Birth control can help prevent pregnancy, including ectopic pregnancies, reduce pain from menstrual cramps and reduce menstrual flow. Specific birth control methods can also help prevent thinning of the bones, ovarian cysts, and some cancers.
