Contraceptive Care Q & A
What is contraceptive care?
Contraception care discussions are important and available at Livingspring Family Medical Center. They include treatments that significantly reduce your risk of getting pregnant when sexually active.
Contraception works by preventing sperm from reaching eggs, reducing the risk of fertilization, or preventing implantation into the uterus. Livingspring Family Medical Center offers a variety of contraception options, so you’re sure to find one that’s right for you.
Which contraception or birth control can I use?
Some of the many contraception and birth control options available at Livingspring Family Medical Center include:
Common types of barrier methods you can choose from include male or female condoms, caps, and diaphragms. You must use these methods properly each time you have sexual intercourse to prevent sperm from reaching eggs and reduce the risk of pregnancy.
Short-acting birth control
Short acting birth control is highly effective for preventing pregnancy, but you must use it as directed. You might take combined birth control pills, receive contraception injections, or use contraceptive patches.
Long-acting reversible contraception
Dr. Olabintan educates patients on long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) and can place them conveniently right in her office. Examples of LARCs available at Livingspring Family Medical Center include contraceptive implants (NEXPLANON®) and intrauterine devices (IUDs), including Mirena® and Paragard®.
Dr. Olabintan places an implant in your arm or an IUD inside your uterus, and takes it out if you’d like to become pregnant. If not, LARCs can last for several years or longer.
Which type of contraception care is right for me?
To find out which type of contraceptive care is the best fit for you, Dr. Olabintan discusses your medical history, lifestyle, and preferences. She may complete a physical exam to detect or rule out specific medical issues before personalizing a contraception plan just for you.
