Birth Control and Contraception

Plaza OB/GYN and its expert OBGYN doctors in Houston provide birth control options for health and family planning.

Birth control and contraceptives feature many ways to prevent pregnancies. New contraception methods allow both women and men to take the necessary steps to reduce chances of pregnancy. Our OBGYN doctors in Houston discuss with our patients about the many options available to them and which would best fit their needs.

Birth Control and Contraception Methods

The first step individuals or couples take when considering contraception options is getting acclimated with the right information. We encourage you to come with questions regarding birth control and contraception options. A birth control doctor wants to find the right solution to give you ease-of-mind and comfortability. Our expert birth control doctor maps out all of the different contraception methods. Some of the options we will discuss with you include:

  • Hormonal birth control, including pills, patches, and shots
  • Barrier birth control, including condoms and spermicides
  • Intrauterine Devices (IUDs)
  • Emergency birth control, including pills and IUDs

Additional options exist for patients requiring other methods. Although no option other than abstinence will guarantee prevention of pregnancies, many of these options are 98 - 99% effective. However, not all of these methods prevent sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) from being shared among partners. Methods like condoms do offer some protection against STDs, but can not be expected to offer complete protection. Our birth control doctor in Houston will discuss more of these options with you.
