Birth Control Options
Our women’s health providers offer a wide variety of temporary and
permanent birth control options to fit every lifestyle and stage of life.
Whether looking for the flexibility of an oral medication, the convenience
of a subcutaneous implant or IUD, or assurance of sterilization via laparoscopic
surgery or hysteroscopic sterilization, our providers can help you.
The latest in permanent sterilization is the Essure® procedure, during
which a tiny mechanism in placed through the cervix and uterus into the
fallopian tubes. After radiofrequency energy is directed at the inside
of the fallopian tubes, a silicone mesh is inserted. Over a three-month
period, the fallopian tubes gradually scar closed, blocking the path along
which an egg and sperm would meet to begin fertilization.
To discuss all your birth control options and determine whether temporary
or permanent birth control is right for you, make an appointment today
with one of the providers in our Berlin, Ocean Pines, or Pocomoke office.
