We specialize in contraceptive care and new contraceptive developments. Education and instruction in the most effective birth control methods are offered for all patients of Women's Health Practice. For patients wishing to start oral contraceptives, this can be arranged the day of the abortion, and we can help you select the best option based on your medical case. DMPA (DepoProvera), Essure Tubal Sterilization procedures, Implanon, Lunelle, ParaGard IUD, and Mirena™ IUS, sterilization, contraceptive patches and rings are available. The patch as an alternative is an excellent choice to help eliminate the worry of contraceptive failure with missed pills as it only needs to be changed weekly. Now we also offer the new incisionless sterilization process Essureª. We can provide initial contraception for your first cycle after your abortion. If you are interested in participating in contraceptive clinical research you may be a candidate for full coverage of all contraceptive services during your study participation, go to research to inquire or register with our research department.
