Contraception Q&A

What is contraception?

Contraception, or birth control, prevents you from getting pregnant when you’re not ready to have kids, are finished having kids, or don’t want kids at all. 

There are multiple options to consider that work in different ways to stop fertilization. Most forms of birth control are reversible, so you can still get pregnant if you decide to do so. 

At Armstrong Telehealth LLC, Nikki can educate you on how to use each form of birth control while helping you decide which choice is best for you. 

She has an extensive background in reproductive health having spent five years working in a family planning clinic. She has also taught contraceptive methods at the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Advanced Practice Nursing conference. 

There is much to consider while choosing contraception, and you might have to try several options before you find a good fit. 

What are my options for contraception?

At Armstrong Telehealth LLC, Nikki can prescribe certain forms of birth control. She can also make referrals to other specialists in your area. Nikki has a background in family planning and can help you decide between popular birth control options like:

  • Hormonal oral contraceptives
  • Male or female condoms
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Intrauterine devices (IUDs)
  • Contraceptive patches
  • Hormonal implants
  • Vaginal rings
  • Injectable birth control
  • IUDs and implants
  • Sterilization procedures like vasectomy and tubal ligation

You might be satisfied with a single form of birth control, or you can double up with specific options. For example, you might have an IUD but still choose to use condoms during sexual intercourse to reduce your risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).  

How do I choose the type of contraception that is best for me?

Choosing a form of birth control isn’t always a straightforward process. Ask plenty of questions so you can weigh your options in the context of your lifestyle and preferences. Nikki can give you all the necessary information to compare the options. 

While making your contraceptive decision, you should consider:

  • Rates of effectiveness
  • Ease of use
  • The number of sexual partners you have
  • How often you have sex
  • Possible side effects
  • Your ability to use the contraceptive consistently

Some types of birth control require taking daily action, like taking a daily pill. Others involve less engagement on your part. You might have to try a few options to see if they cause side effects for you.
