Some women take birth control purely as a form of contraception while others use it for the many non-contraceptive benefits that they impart. These include menstrual cycle regulation, decreased menstrual flow and pain, improvement in acne, prevention of anemia and prevention of ovarian cancer. Regardless of your reasons for wanting birth control, it is important to know the options available and their various benefits and potential risks.
Birth control can occasionally produce unwanted side effects. It is important to be able to speak directly to the doctor when these things occur so that appropriate changes can be made. I personally answer all medical questions from my patients directly via phone or email so that your concerns are addressed in a knowledgeable and professional manner.
