We offer hormonal and non-hormonal options including, oral contraceptives, vaginal rings, injectables, implants, patches, and I.U.D. (Intrauterine Device). We can also discuss the effectiveness of other methods like condoms and spermicide. Once you’ve chosen a certain method, we’ll go over how it works and how to administer it and discuss benefits and potential side effects to watch out for. We have over 100 years of combined professional industry experience, and we stay on top of all current developments in the field of family planning.

Postpartum Birth Control

If you’re currently pregnant and receiving prenatal care, we can discuss your options for postpartum birth control if you feel your family is complete or you wish to put off having another baby. Our professionals will describe the pros and cons of all forms of birth control including pills, injectables, vaginal rings, Nexplanon, intrauterine devices, and what is safe while breastfeeding. We’ll talk about what your desires are and suggest methods that are longer lasting or more temporary based on your wishes.

Sterilization Procedures

We offer surgical sterilization. If you’re pregnant and having a cesarean section, we can perform your sterilization (tubal) at the same time. Sterilization is designed to be a permanent procedure for women who feel their family is complete.
