Birth Control Options

Birth control is a personal choice and with so many options available, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. In an effort to make the decision easier, we put together this video of frequently asked questions and the answers from Dr. Annelise Swigert.

  • IUD

    A small, flexible, T-shaped device that is inserted into the uterus that is effective for 3-10 years, depending on the device that is chosen.

  • Nexplanon

    A small flexible rod inserted beneath the skin of your upper arm that lasts up to 3 years.

  • Oral Contraceptives

    Commonly known as the birth control pill, it is a daily medication used to prevent pregnancy.

    There are many different types of pills depending on your needs.

  • Permanent Solutions

    If you are done having children and want a permanent form of birth control, we provide 2 options:

    • Laparoscopic tubal ligation
    • Essure tubal occlusion

    * These procedures are performed in a outpatient setting at Fairview Southdale and Fairview Ridges Hospitals.

  • Other Birth Control Options

    Birth Control Patch – an adhesive patch placed weekly that releases estrogen and progesterone.

    Vagina Ring – A flexible, plastic ring that is inserted into the vagina and changed monthly.

    Depo-Provera Injection – a progesterone-only injection given every 3 months, at your providers office.

    Barrier Methods – condoms, female condoms and diaphragms.
