Contraception Q & A

What is contraception?

Contraception available at Maximos OB/GYN includes methods that help you avoid becoming pregnant despite being sexually active. It’s a strategy for family planning, as you can become pregnant in the future by stopping your current contraception method. Maximos OB/GYN offers numerous forms of contraception that match your lifestyle and preferences.


What are the different types of contraception?

Contraception solutions available at Maximos OB/GYN include short- and long-acting methods, including:



You can place a diaphragm inside of your vagina to cover your cervix and prevent sperm from entering, thereby preventing pregnancy.  



Birth control pills are a highly effective way of preventing pregnancies by altering your body’s hormone balance.



You can wear a birth control patch directly on your skin to release hormones and prevent you from becoming pregnant. You may need to replace the patch weekly. 



Maximos OB/GYN offers birth control injections that release throughout your body to prevent pregnancy for several months.



Dr. Maximos can place a tiny birth control implant underneath the skin in your upper arm to reduce the risk of pregnancy for three years or longer. 


Intrauterine devices (IUDs)

Dr. Maximos inserts an IUD through your vagina into your uterus to prevent pregnancies for up to 10 years. He can remove the device if you decide you’d like to become pregnant. 


Permanent birth control methods

Maximos OB/GYN offers permanent birth control methods using minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgeries to prevent pregnancies indefinitely. 


Which contraception option is best for me?

Dr. Maximose lets you know which form of contraception best matches your needs after discussing your medical history, medications, lifestyle, and preferences. He completes a physical exam and a pelvic exam or blood tests if needed to ensure your contraception choice is safe and effective.

It’s important to follow Dr. Maximos’s instructions to ensure your birth control method works as designed. 

Unless you opt for a permanent birth control method or have a medical condition that prevents pregnancies, discontinuing contraception allows you the chance of becoming pregnant.
