What contraception choices are available?

The Feminine Urgicare team offers women many contraceptive choices, ensuring each woman gets the method that meets her family planning, lifestyle, and personal needs.

Women can choose from contraceptives such as: 

  • Intrauterine devices (IUDs), hormone-containing and copper
  • Birth control pills (oral contraceptives)
  • Birth control implants
  • Birth control patches
  • Birth control shots
  • Vaginal rings
  • Diaphragms

Each contraceptive has different benefits and potential side effects, and some are more effective than others. 

How does hormone-based contraception work?

The contraceptives listed above (except for copper IUDs and diaphragms) prevent pregnancy by slowly releasing hormones. The hormones they contain determine how they work.

Some hormones stop your ovaries from releasing an egg every month, making it impossible to get pregnant. Other hormones prevent a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus.

Hormones also change your cervical mucus, making it hard for sperm to get through the cervix and into your uterus. 

What makes long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) different?

LARCs include all IUDs and implants. They’re just as effective as permanent sterilization because you don’t need to take any other steps after they’re inserted.

Contraceptive pills, shots, patches, and rings are also highly effective — as long as you remember to take your daily pill and get shots or replace patches and rings on time. Forgetting a pill or not getting the other methods on time significantly reduces their effectiveness.


The implant is a matchstick-like device your provider inserts under your skin. They place flexible, T-shaped IUDs inside your uterus. After these contraceptives are in place, they continuously prevent pregnancy for 3-10 years, depending on which one you get.


Though they prevent pregnancy for years, you can decide to have your LARC removed at any time. Your Feminine Urgicare provider removes it in the office. You can get pregnant any time after that if you don’t use another contraceptive. 

What should I expect during a visit for contraception?

Your Feminine Urgicare provider learns about your medical and menstrual history and then performs a pelvic exam. They need to be sure you don’t have any health concerns that may affect your contraception choices. 

After your provider explains your choices and answers your questions, you choose the method you want, and they provide it.
