Your Birth Control Experts

We are experts at birth control and offer access to every FDA-approved method. During your appointment, we discuss different methods because we want to help you find the birth control that’s right for you.

Birth Control

The birth control methods that are most effective at preventing pregnancy include “set it and forget it” methods, like the IUD and the implant. Other effective methods require daily, weekly, or monthly maintenance, including the shot, vaginal ring, patch, or pill. Some methods require a patient to use it every single time they have sex, like condoms, diaphragms, and the sponge.

Emergency Contraception

Emergency contraception is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy up to 5 days after unprotected sex.

The best kind of emergency contraception for you depends on a few factors: when you had unprotected sex, your weight, whether you’re breastfeeding, and what kind is easiest for you to get.


Abortion is very common, and people have abortions for many different reasons. Only you know what’s best for you, but good information and support can help you make the decision that is best for your own health and well-being.

There are two ways of ending a pregnancy: in-clinic abortion and the abortion pill. Both are safe and very common. If you’re pregnant and thinking about abortion, you may have lots of questions. We’re here to help.
