Birth control is a very personal choice. The team at Canopy Medical Clinic does their best to help you find the form of birth control that will work best for you.
Birth control works in several different ways. The team at Canopy Medical Clinic educates you on each type and their pros and cons:
Condoms are the only type of birth control that help prevent sexually transmitted diseases. Certain hormonal birth control can help alleviate heavy periods and other gynecological problems.
Long-acting contraception, or LARCs, include Nexplanon and IUDs. They provide protection from pregnancy for several years. You don’t have to worry about applying them before sex or taking a dose monthly or daily. Once inserted, you don’t have to worry about birth control.
Nexplanon is an implant placed in the arm and protects for up to three years. The team at Canopy Medical Clinic offers Nexplanon insertions and removals.
IUDs come in two forms: hormonal and non-hormonal. Hormonal IUDs provide protection for 3-7 years, and non-hormonal IUDs can offer protection for 10-12 years. The team does not currently place IUDs but can refer you to a skilled provider.
