Contraception and Family Planning Options
There are many safe and effective birth control methods available at Aracea Women’s Care in Cherry Creek. Some of the options offered by our gynecologists include:
- Hormonal suppression – pills, patches, injections or under-skin implants that are prescribed to inhibit egg production
- Intrauterine devices (IUDs) – a long-term birth control device inserted into the uterus that both kills sperm and suppresses the implantation of a fertilized egg
- Permanent birth control – tubal ligation and in-office incision-less tubal ligation such as Essure that close the fallopian tubes and effectively prevents 99% of pregnancies.
