7 Myths And Misconceptions About Birth Control

There are a lot of options out there for birth control and a lot of misconceptions, many of which are outright false. It is important to know the facts, especially when it comes to your health! Here are some of the most common myths and misconceptions about contraception that you should know.

Bring These Things Up To Your Gynecologist!

Because women are unique, their reproductive health is unique as well. Even if your concern may seem embarrassing, you should be sure to ask your doctor about the issues you are experiencing. Here are some of the most important things to bring up to your gynecologist.

What Are The Different Types of Birth Control?

Many birth control methods are available, including pills, implants, injections, patches, and natural family planning practices (abstinence, fertility tracking, etc…). The effectiveness of each method can vary and some may not be right in certain circumstances. All help to prevent conception, but with so many options out there, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you.

Better Birth Control Choices: The IUD

Of the many different forms of birth control available, the intrauterine device (IUD) is one of the most effective, with a 99% success rate. An IUD can be in place for several years and be effective; but also can be easily removed without affecting your ability to get pregnant.
