If you are sexually active but are not ready to become pregnant, using some form of contraception (birth control) in addition to getting regular STI/STD and pregnancy tests is crucial. Choosing the appropriate birth control method involves weighing the advantages and disadvantages of each method and choosing the method to best fit your individual needs and lifestyle. At Women’s Health Associates, our family planning services provide a full spectrum of affordable birth control options. We offer an extensive array of intrauterine devices (IUDs), hormone-based methods such as oral pills or injections, or even physical barriers such as condoms or diaphragms. It is important to remember that in order for a birth control method to be fully effective, you must use it consistently and correctly.
