What to Consider When Choosing Contraceptives

Featured Image

At Professionals for Women's Health, with locations in Columbus, Dublin, and Westerville, OH, we understand that the best contraceptive method for you depends on various factors. Your health, age, sexual activity level, and future pregnancy plans are crucial in determining the right choice. Through our well-woman care program, we offer personalized contraceptive counseling personalized to your unique needs and preferences.

What role does health play in choosing hormone-based birth control?

Health is a vital consideration when choosing hormone-based birth control. At Professionals for Women's Health, we review your medical history, current health status, and specific needs to determine if this option is suitable for you. Hormone-based birth control methods include pills, patches, injections, and rings, and their appropriateness may vary depending on existing health conditions or concerns.

How does age affect your choice of an IUD?

Age can play a role in determining whether an intrauterine device (IUD) is the right contraceptive option for you. Professionals for Women's Health recognizes that younger individuals may prefer an IUD for its long-term, reversible protection, especially if they are not planning a family in the immediate future. On the other hand, those closer to menopause might opt for an IUD due to its non-hormonal options and ease of management. Both hormone-based and non-hormone-based IUDs are available, and our staff will thoroughly review these choices with you, considering your age and related factors, to find the IUD that best aligns with your life stage and reproductive goals.

Why is sexual activity level important in contraceptive counseling?

Your sexual activity level plays a key role in determining the right contraceptive method for you. During a consultation at Professionals for Women's Health, our staff will review the various options in line with your sexual activity level, whether it's hormone-based birth control, an IUD, or another method. Contraceptive counseling ensures that your unique needs and preferences are met, empowering you to make an informed decision.

What if you plan to become pregnant in the near future?

If you're planning to become pregnant soon, the contraceptive method choice becomes even more critical. At Professionals for Women's Health, we'll work with you to select a method that aligns with your family planning goals, whether it's a short-term solution or a reversible long-term option. Our comprehensive contraceptive counseling supports you in choosing a method that complements your future pregnancy plans.
