  • All contraceptives are reversible. When you stop using it you return to fertility
  • You can use an IUD even if you haven’t had pregnancies
  • Contraceptives have a direct effect on your menstruation
  • Not all hormone contraceptives make you gain weight
  • Contraceptives don’t protect you from sexually transmitted diseases, that’s why you need to use a condom.
  • All contraceptives are between 98.9 and 99% effective

The majority of birth control methods have a direct effect on your menstrual cycle, which is why they can also be prescribed to treat any conditions related to your cycle. 
Additionally, there is a birth control method that doesn’t influence your cycle because it’s hormone-free, the copper IUD.

IUD copper, silver or Mirena, or even Subdermals like Implanon, we can help you with placement, removal or replacement.

All of the contraceptive methods we recommend have a 98 to 99% efficacy in preventing pregnancy when used right. In addition to that, we always recommend combining a birth control method with condoms because they are the only method that can provide protection against most STIs (sexually transmitted infections).

A lot of patients inquire about using the morning after pill as a contraceptive method. We think it’s very important that patients know this is not the best method, particularly because it’s efficiency in the best of cases is of 75%. This means that it will most likely fail 1 out of 4 times.
