Contraceptive Counseling

The physicians at East Cooper Medical Group OBGYN providers provide contraceptive counseling to help you make an informed decision on the right birth control method for you. There are many different forms of contraception to choose from and without appropriate guidance it can feel overwhelming. We are here to assist you in understanding all of your options so you can make the best decision based on your individual values and needs.

Family Planning Care Based on Your Goals

Regardless of what form of birth control you choose, we make it our responsibility to provide you with knowledge and support so you can make an informed decision. During your contraceptive counseling visit, we will discuss your current lifestyle and learn about any medical conditions you have. We will also ask about your reproductive goals to gain insight into your plans for having children. What you want now may or may not change in the future, so we lay out all of your options and make recommendations based on your preferences.

When considering your selections, we will inform you about potential side effects and their likelihood and invite you to ask questions or pose any concerns you may have. We outline all of the pertinent details to ensure the form of birth control you choose can be effective.

Changing Your Method of Contraception

A time may come when you want to change your current form of birth control, such as switching from the pill to an IUD. Turn to our physicians to answer any of your questions and to provide guidance on timing and whether or not backup birth control is necessary during the transition. We hope to make the process as seamless as possible.
