Contraceptives for Katy women mean having a baby on your terms
Posted by Dr. Taryll Jenkins
"Family planning" is often associated with a couple’s efforts to get pregnant. Sometimes family planning means waiting until the right time in a woman’s life to conceive. Modern contraceptives for women reduce the chance of an unplanned pregnancy. Katy ob-gyns, Dr. Jenkins and Dr. Falae provide birth control options that fit your lifestyle.
Factors to consider
Are you shy about seeing a healthcare provider? Please don’t be! We are here to answer your questions and assist. Drug store contraceptive methods have the lowest rate of effectiveness.
Is protection from STDs a concern? You may want to consider male or female condoms, alone or in conjunction with another form of contraception.
How do you feel about hormones? Birth control pills contain synthetic hormones, estrogen and progestin, in a combination that stops ovulation. However, some medications and medical conditions are contraindications for use of hormones.
Are you forgetful? Birth control pills must be taken on schedule.
Do you prefer a private method that is not obvious? Options range from IUDs, to implants, patches, shots, and the vaginal ring.
Do you think you will want children in the future? Then a non-reversible method such as surgical sterilization or Essure is not appropriate. However, when your family is complete, these may be carefree solutions for permanent contraception.

Our doctors understand that your body and your life plans are not like those of any other patient.
