Birth Control Q & A

Why is birth control important to women’s health?

Birth control plays a pivotal role in empowering women to make choices about their reproductive futures, allowing them to plan pregnancies when they’re ready and ensure optimal health outcomes for both themselves and their families.

Every woman’s life journey is unique, and birth control serves as a means to support their individual choices and aspirations.

Which birth control options are available?

The knowledgeable midwives at Artemis Midwives offer guidance on a range of birth control methods, including:

Hormonal methods

These include birth control pills, patches, injections, and hormonal IUDs. They regulate hormones to prevent ovulation and create a barrier against pregnancy.

Barrier methods

These include condoms, diaphragms, and cervical caps. They create a physical barrier to prevent sperm from reaching the egg.

Long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs)

These include hormonal and copper IUDs, as well as contraceptive implants. They offer extended protection without requiring daily attention.

Natural family planning (NFP)

Also called fertility awareness-based methods, these involve tracking menstrual cycles. You avoid intercourse during fertile periods if you don’t wish to become pregnant or have sex during these fertile periods when you do want to conceive.

How can I determine the best birth control option for me?

Edine and Chidera work closely with you to understand your unique health needs, preferences, and lifestyle. During a personalized consultation, they discuss your goals and concerns so that you receive recommendations tailored to your personal circumstances.
