Understanding the side effects of birth control in Katy

Side Effects of Birth Control at Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Medicine in Katy Area

Many women ask what the best method of birth control is. There is no simple answer to that question. Choosing your method of birth control is a very important and very personal decision. In addition to lifestyle choices and personal preferences, your body is unique. Most birth control methods have some potential side effects. However, those side effects do not manifest uniformly, and sometimes they do not occur at all. Each woman reacts differently. Some of the most popular choices include:

The pill

Advantages: Birth control pills are safer than ever, with fewer risks and side effects than those in the past. Because there are many formulas, and the dosage can be adjusted, this is a highly customizable solution.

Side effects: Oral contraceptives occasionally cause dizziness, indigestion, weight gain, or other rare complications. These problems can usually be avoided by tailoring your prescription to your health.

Intrauterine device

Advantages: The Mirena intrauterine device provides long-lasting, yet reversible birth control. You don’t need to do anything, making it quite convenient. This option also gives the peace of mind of knowing that there is no risk of forgetting your birth control.

Side effects: Problems with this treatment are very rare, and may include cramps or inflammation.

Vaginal ring

Advantages: The vaginal ring offers constant protection for three weeks, without surgical implantation.

Side effects: Some women experience irritation, and the medication in the ring has similar potential side effects to certain oral contraceptives.

Dr. Jenkins is a kind, professional and a Dr. Whom actually listens to his patients. He makes you laugh which makes you comftorable in the situation. He had my sons best interest at heart when I was in labor at 33 weeks. I'm a stuborn woman and did not want to be in the hospital on mothers day. I wanted to travel an hour away and yet, he stood his ground and did what's best. I'm truly grateful for the wonderdul care he provided and if I ever am with child again, Dr. Jenkins will be my choice again.
