Find a Birth Control Option That Works for You.

Our providers are experts in the full range of birth control options. We can help you choose the method that is uniquely suited to your life and needs.

Why Birth Control? 

The same medications that prevent unintended pregnancy are often used to decrease period symptoms such as bleeding or pain.  These are used by people who want birth control and also by those who aren’t sexually active or aren’t having sex that can cause pregnancy. Our clinicians are birth control experts and can help you understand whether birth control is right for you, and what option is best for your lifestyle and body. Don't want a hormonal method, or don't want to think about birth control every day? No problem! We have options!
