How to choose the birth control options available in Katy

Birth Control Options at Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Medicine in Katy Area

If having a baby is not in your immediate future, you are probably considering your options for birth control. However, just like your health overall, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to preventing pregnancy. What works for your best friend may not fit your lifestyle or the method your cousin chooses may give you side effects. From pills to rings to patches, there are many birth control options on the market. It’s important to work with your obstetrician or gynecologist when deciding which birth control method is right for you.

Choosing the method of birth control that fits your life is important. The pill cannot be effective if you don’t remember to take it, for example. Additionally, it’s important to remember that most forms of birth control are designed only to prevent pregnancy. They do not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases.

Dr. Taryll Jenkins counsels his patients in Katy and the surrounding area to select the right form of birth control for their individual situation. Here are some considerations when evaluating your decision:

Lifestyle: Do you want to take a pill, use birth control every day, or only use birth control when you’re having sex? Do you smoke? Do you want a private method so other people won’t know you’re using it? Can you put up with minor side effects until your body gets used to a certain medication? Will it be several years until you want to become pregnant or is your family complete and perhaps you’re looking for a permanent method?

Convenience: Will you remember to take a pill every day or would you prefer to think about birth control only just before you have sex? Would you prefer an option that stays in place for five years?

Effectiveness: Would an unplanned pregnancy be manageable or do you need a higher degree of effectiveness?

Affordability: Would you prefer to pay more upfront for long-term pregnancy prevention? Do you have insurance that will cover your selected approach? Do you need something that is low cost and available over the counter?

These are just some of the considerations when deciding on a birth control method. There is a range of choices and each has its own advantages and disadvantages to consider before making a decision. If you’re considering selecting or changing your method of birth control, call Dr. Jenkins today to schedule an appointment.
