Both men and women have used various methods of contraception for many years in an attempt to either plan or prevent pregnancy. There are numerous safe and effective methods available and Dr. Rania Ibrahim can help you decide which method is the most appropriate one for your lifestyle.
contraceptionAll patients have different needs when choosing their own personal form of contraception, so your OB-GYN will discuss all of your options with you, while explaining the pros and cons of each.
There are a number of factors to be considered when choosing your form of contraception, and the choice can sometimes be difficult. Some of the factors you need to discuss with your OB-GYN include the following:
- Whether or not you and your partner want to have children in the future;
- The effective rate for each method of contraception and any possible side effects for each option;
- A review of your overall health;
- Your past and present sexual partners and how often you have sex.
Keep in mind that except for abstinence, no form of contraception is completely guaranteed. But if you use the method you choose correctly and dependably, you’ll significantly reduce the chances of an unexpected pregnancy.
You should also discuss the effectiveness of each method of birth control with your OB-GYN. Some people innocently trust the withdrawal method – when a man removes his penis before he ejaculates – when in reality it’s definitely not to be trusted!
The sperm is often released before the man pulls out via the pre-ejaculate fluid that collects on the tip of his penis.
We know that you are the only one who can decide which method of contraception is best for you and your lifestyle, but we’re here to help to make the right decision by arming you with all the information you need.
