Birth Control in Andrews, TX

Birth control is about preventing unwanted pregnancy. Today, with so many methods of birth control available, there is really no reason that anyone should have to deal with an unwanted pregnancy. There are four categories of birth control methods – behaviors, devices, medications and procedures. Each of these offers you several options to avoid pregnancy.

Behaviors

Abstention is the “gold standard” of birth control in this category. If you don’t put sperm in the vagina, you cannot get pregnant. But for many people, this is easier said than done. You can also achieve birth control with alternative sexual practices, including withdrawal and rhythm methods, which are extremely unreliable, and outercourse, which includes sexual activity that does not involve vaginal intercourse or penetration.

Devices

Birth control devices include condoms, diaphragms, female condoms, cervical caps, birth control sponges, IUDs, birth control rings (NuvaRing®) and birth control implants such as Implanon® and Nexplanon®.

Medications

Birth control pills lead the list, which also includes spermicides, morning-after pills, birth control medication shots and patches.

Procedures

The most common birth control procedures include tubal ligation, vasectomy, hysterectomy and Essure®, a minimally invasive surgical procedure that causes permanent, irreversible sterilization in women.
