Having a way to control pregnancy can be the key to fulfilling sexual intimacy for the modern woman. Many different and effective forms of birth control exist that allow women this freedom and protection. Dr. Kompal Gadh at the Advanced OBGYN Institute, help women in Weston and Pembroke Pines, Florida weigh their birth control options to find one that fits their lifestyle and has the level of protection they require.
Today's woman has a lot of options available to help prevent and control pregnancy. Some of these options and their effectiveness with typical use include:
Dr. Gadh will assist patients in determining their best option for birth control based on their specific goals and needs.
These prevent pregnancy in one of two ways. First, they trick the body into not ovulating. If the woman doesn't ovulate, she can't get pregnant. Second, many of these have a back-up form of birth control that makes the reproductive system inhospitable, so sperm have a harder time reaching the egg, and if an egg does get fertilized, it won't implant.
Hormonal birth control methods include:
Barrier methods block the path of the sperm to the egg. These methods include:
Barrier methods are inserted into the vagina or placed over the penis to prevent the sperm from uniting with the egg. They are effective when used properly, but unfortunately are sometimes inserted poorly or not used consistently.
Spermicidal creams and foams work by killing sperm before they can reach the egg. This can be used when women don't want to use hormonal birth control and are fine with the risk of unwanted pregnancy.
The only permanent forms of birth control are vasectomy and tubal ligation. A vasectomy is usually performed by a urologist and involves cutting the tubes in a man's scrotum that carry sperm to the penis. Tubal ligation involves cutting the fallopian tubes so sperm cannot reach the egg and cause pregnancy. Both are almost 100 percent effective, though there's always a slight risk that the tissue will grow back together and allow for future pregnancies. Dr. Gadh can assist women who want permanent birth control through tubal ligation.
