Birth Control Q & A

What is birth control?

Birth control is a treatment that significantly reduces your risk of becoming pregnant when you’re sexually active. Modern OBGYN Care offers a variety of birth control options to aid in your family planning goals. They personalize each one to match your unique needs.

Is birth control right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for birth control, and which type is best for you, the team at Modern OBGYN Care discusses your medical history and lifestyle, as well as your goals for having children in the future. Some types of birth control are permanent, while others are short-acting or long-lasting.

What are the different types of birth control?

Some of the many types of birth control available at Modern OBGYN Care include:

Barrier methods

Barrier methods for birth control include diaphragms, condoms, sponges, and cervical caps. You must use them each time you have sex to have protection against getting pregnant. 

Birth control pills

You have to take birth control pills exactly as directed by your doctor to reap the benefits of this noninvasive birth control option.

Other short-acting birth control options

In addition to birth control pills, other short-acting options include patches, shots, and vaginal rings. You must repeat these treatments at specific time intervals to prevent pregnancy.

Intrauterine devices (IUDs)

Your OBGYN specialist can insert an IUD into your uterus to prevent you from getting pregnant for several years or longer. If you’d like to become pregnant, they simply remove the IUD when you’re ready.

Hormone implants

Your specialist can insert a tiny implant underneath the skin in your arm to release hormones into your body gradually over time and reduce the chance of getting pregnant. As with IUDs, birth control implants are long-lasting and reversible. 


Sterilization is considered a permanent solution for birth control, so be sure you don’t want to have children in the future before choosing this option. Modern OBGYN Care providers offer tubal ligation, tubal occlusion, hysterectomy, and other surgical procedures for women who want to permanently prevent pregnancy.
