BIRTH CONTROL

Which birth control is right for me?
Birth control is effective at preventing pregnancy. Dr. Asfouri reviews your medical history and family planning choices to determine which birth control method is right for you. Open discussion between you and the doctor will ensure the two of you make the right choice.

Birth control options include:

  • Hormone medications, like pills, rings, patches, and injections

  • Intrauterine devices (IUDs)

Dr. Asfouri may recommend hormonal birth control to treat other medical issues:​​

  • Heavy or painful periods

  • Endometriosis

  • PMS symptoms

  • Irregular periods

  • Fibroids

What are the risks associated with birth control?

Contraceptive methods may produce side effects or complications. So, you may need to try several types of birth control and work closely with Dr. Asfouri until you find the right method. He discusses the possible side effects of each method to ensure you understand the risks.

What if I want to become pregnant?

Before giving you a method of birth control, Dr. Asfouri discusses your desire for children in the short or long term to ensure the contraception he provides is the most effective for you.

When you decide to become pregnant, Dr. Asfouri helps you stop your birth control regimen effectively. If you have an IUD or implant, it will be taken it out, and pregnancy is possible immediately after removal.

To learn more about available birth control options, schedule an appointment online or by phone.
