Understanding Your Birth Control Options

Women have lots of options when it comes to birth control. It’s best to talk to a gynecologist to sort through all of your options, since your personal preferences and medical needs are unique. Oral contraceptives are among the most popular birth control choices. Your gynecologist might recommend a lighter dose or a heavier dose. If you prefer not to take a pill every day, your gynecologist may recommend trying the birth control shot, which is administered every three months.
