contraception-optionsWomen and men use a variety of contraception options in an effort to either prevent or plan a pregnancy.  There are a number of safe and effective methods available, and Dr. E. Stanton Shoemaker, your ObGyn Corpus Christi, TX can help you determine which method is most suitable for your lifestyle.

Contraception for women and for men is personal and is based on your unique needs. Your ObGyn should discuss all of your choices with you and explain the pros and cons of each. Since contraception for women is different from men, each person may want to prepare questions so that you leave from the appointment with a clear understanding of the options.

What Questions Should I Consider?

There are a number of factors to be considered when selecting your form of contraception, and the process can be challenging at times.  Some of the factors you need to discuss with your ObGyn Corpus Christi include whether or not to want to have children, your overall health,  your past (and present) partners and sexual frequency.

Contrary to popular belief, except for abstinence, there is no method of birth control that is 100% guaranteed.  But if you use the option that you choose correctly and dependably, you’ll greatly reduce the chances of experiencing an unwanted pregnancy.

You should also discuss how effective each method of birth control is with your ObGyn Corpus Christi.  Some couples unknowingly trust the withdrawal method – which is when a man removes his penis prior to ejaculation – when in reality it’s definitely NOT effective!  Many times the sperm is released before the man pulls out – so don’t trust this method!

We know that only you can decide which method of contraception is best for your lifestyle, but we’re here to help you make the right decision by equipping you with all the information you need.
