Contraception Counseling & Procedures

Today, there are many safe and effective birth control options to choose from. To select the one that is best suited to your needs and those of your partner, turn to Rock Hill GYN & OB for contraception counseling and procedures. At our locations in both Rock Hill and Fort Mill, SC, we offer the necessary guidance so you can make an informed decision.

Family Planning Care Based on Your Goals

As your health care provider, we understand that choosing the best form of birth control may feel overwhelming. Rest assured that we equip you with the information you need to make an informed decision while offering guidance along the way. During a visit for contraception counseling, it will be necessary to be open about your lifestyle, sexual history, as well as any medical conditions or concerns you have. We will ask what your family planning goals are for the future. If you know you may struggle to remember to take your birth control pill every day or if you know you do not want to get pregnant for at least 5 years, then an IUD may be right for you. The good news is that there is a birth control option for you that fits your goals and preferences. Different forms of birth control include:

  • Condom
  • Diaphragm
  • Birth Control Pill
  • NuvaRing®
  • Ortho Evra® Patch
  • Mirena® IUD
  • Tubal Ligation Surgery

As you consider your selections, we invite you to ask questions and pose any concerns you may have about potential side effects. Your doctor or nurse practitioner will outline all of the pertinent details to ensure the form of birth control you choose is safe and effective for you.

Changing Your Method of Contraception

You may be using one form of birth control and wish to make a change, such as switching from the pill to an IUD. Turn to our physicians to help you make the change.
