One of the most common reasons for visiting our office is to receive some form of birth control or contraceptive. While there are plenty of options available, and many have their own unique benefits and risks, not every form of contraceptive is right for you. Only your physician, who has your complete medical history and list of current medications, completely understands the risks and benefits and know which birth control is right for you. What’s more, many people don’t give their birth control the same attention as they would with other medications. But the fact of the matter is Birth Control, whether it comes in the form of a pill or an IUD, has an effect on your body, and you should completely understand those effects before you begin your regular birth control regimen.
