Birth Control & Contraceptives

Dr. Ramsey evaluates your current health and situation, then discusses which type(s) of contraception best suit you.

  • Birth Control Pills

    Oral hormones taken daily to prevent pregnancy. Types include combination (estrogen and progestin) and progestin-only.

  • Contraceptive Implants

    Plastic rods containing hormones to prevent pregnancy are injected under the skin of the upper arm. Implants generally last up to three years, and may be removed by your physician.

  • Intrauterine Device (IUD)

    A small “T” shaped coil is inserted into the uterus to prevent fertilization and implantation, thus inhibiting pregnancy.

  • Tubal Ligation

    This surgical sterilization procedure involves clamping and/or blocking the fallopian tubes, thus preventing eggs from reaching the uterus. This method of birth control is permanent.
