Katy women consider the best type of birth control

In Katy Area Women Consider the Best Type of Birth Control

Deciding to have a baby is a momentous decision. Ideally, a pregnancy occurs after a woman has decided that she’s ready to be a mom and start a family. The time for that decision is different for every woman and until she’s ready for a first (or another) baby, many women want a birth control option that they can rely on.

While there are many types of birth control, it can be overwhelming for many women to decide which method is right for them. Dr. Taryll Jenkins of Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Medicine has been helping women choose the best birth control option to fit their lifestyle, budget, and unique circumstances. Here, Dr. Jenkins discusses some of the most popular non-permanent birth control methods:

Birth control pill: Sometimes simply known as “The Pill,” this birth control option contains several hormones. It is 92-99% effective when taken correctly. Patients using the birth control pill should ensure that they take the pill each day and at the same time of day each day. The pill is not advised for patients over the age of 35 who smoke, have a history of blood clots, or have had breast cancer.

Birth control shot: The birth control shot is an injectable medication that keeps a woman’s body from ovulating. The shot is extremely effective and is administered every three months. Many women who opt for the shot like that they can receive the injection and then forget all about birth control for three months.

Intrauterine device: Also known as an IUD, the intrauterine device is implanted into the vagina to prevent pregnancy. Various methods of the IUD can last up to five or ten years. As with all birth control methods, there can be side effects, but many women report that their periods are lighter or disappear altogether. Benefits of the IUD include the ability to nearly forget about the device and prevent pregnancy for many years. If you decide to become pregnant, the device can easily be removed.

These are only some of the options available to sexually active women who want to prevent a pregnancy. If you’re considering birth control, Dr. Jenkins is available to talk with you about all of the options available to you and help you decide which type of birth control is best for you. It’s important to remember, however, that birth control is only designed to prevent pregnancy, it does not protect against sexually transmitted disease.
