At North Scottsdale Women's Care we specialize in family planning. It is a highly individualized process, and open communication with us is key to selecting the most suitable contraception method for your unique circumstances and needs.
There are various contraceptive options, including birth control pills, intrauterine devices (IUDs), condoms, implants, and more. The choice depends on factors like your health, lifestyle, future family planning goals, and personal preferences. We can help you explore the options and select the one that suits your needs best.
The effectiveness of contraception varies depending on the method used and how consistently and correctly it's used. Factors like medication interactions, illnesses, and certain lifestyle choices (such as missing birth control pills) can impact contraceptive reliability. It's crucial to discuss these factors with us to ensure you're using your chosen method effectively.
If you're planning to start a family, it's advisable to consult us for preconception care, including discussing any necessary vaccinations, lifestyle modifications, and a healthy pregnancy plan. If you wish to discontinue contraception, we can provide guidance on when it's safe to do so and help you prepare for a healthy pregnancy.
Different contraceptives can have various side effects and risks. Common side effects may include hormonal changes, irregular bleeding, or minor discomfort. We can help you manage side effects, switch to a different method if needed, or address any concerns about risks associated with contraception.
Long-term contraceptive methods like IUDs and implants offer convenience and high effectiveness. However, it's essential to discuss their potential side effects, insertion process, removal procedures, and any future family planning goals. We will provide guidance on making informed choices about these methods.
