Find the Method Best for You
You have a variety of options when it comes to preventing pregnancy. And the method that's always worked for your sister or best friend might not be safe or effective for you.
Your own health history, family needs and lifestyle affect which option is best for you.
The first step in choosing a form of contraception is talking to your doctor. Physicians at Sanford Women's provide a variety of birth control options:
- Oral contraception (the pill)
- Contraceptive patch or implant
- Vaginal ring contraception
- Injection Depo-Provera
- Intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system
- Tubal ligation
