Birth Control Options in Ridgewood

Today, women have more options than ever for birth control.  While there is an abundance of contraceptive choices to choose from, it is important to understand each option and what it has to offer.  By visiting your OBGYN you will be able to find the best contraceptive choice for you.  You will want to find out how each form of contraception will affect your health. Some contraceptive choices include:

  • Hormonal contraceptives, such as birth control pills, skin patch, vaginal ring, injection and implant.
  • Intrauterine devices (IUDs), which contain either a hormone or copper
  • Barrier devices, such as condoms, diaphragm, cervical cap, sponge
  • Fertility awareness methods
  • Sterilization

Of these choices, the condom is the only form of birth control that protects against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Schedule an appointment with your OBGYN today to discuss contraceptive choices and to determine which option is best for you.  Your OBGYN will be able to explain each contraceptive choice and the risks involved.
