Contraceptive Counseling

At Obsgyn London, we understand that contraceptive choices are deeply personal and unique to each individual. Our team is dedicated to providing comprehensive contraceptive counseling to help you make informed decisions about your reproductive health. We believe in empowering you with knowledge and supporting your right to choose the best method for your lifestyle, relationships, and future plans.

Our Contraceptive Counseling Services:

  • Initial Consultation: During your initial visit, our healthcare providers will discuss your medical history, current health status, and future family planning goals. We will also address any concerns or questions you may have about contraception.
  • Education and Information: We provide unbiased and evidence-based information on a wide range of contraceptive methods, including hormonal birth control (such as pills, patches, rings, injections, and implants), intrauterine devices (IUDs), condoms, diaphragms, fertility awareness methods, and permanent sterilization.
  • Personalized Recommendations: Considering your medical history and personal preferences, we will offer tailored recommendations and guidance. Our goal is to help you choose the most suitable method that aligns with your lifestyle, effectiveness preferences, and comfort level.
  • Risk Assessment and Management: Our team will assess and discuss any potential risks or side effects associated with different contraceptive methods. We will also provide guidance on managing these risks and offer alternative options if needed.
  • Ongoing Support: Contraceptive counseling is not a one-time event. We offer ongoing support and follow-up appointments to ensure your chosen method is working effectively and safely. We are here to address any concerns, adjust your method if necessary, and provide additional counseling as your needs change.
  • Emergency Contraception: In the event of unprotected intercourse or contraceptive failure, we can provide emergency contraception options and guidance. Our team will educate you on the different types of emergency contraceptive pills and their effectiveness, as well as discuss other emergency options such as IUD insertion.
  • Addressing Misconceptions: Unfortunately, there are many misconceptions and myths surrounding contraception. Our providers will take the time to clarify misinformation and provide accurate, up-to-date information to empower your decision-making process.
  • Sensitivity and Confidentiality: We recognize that discussing contraception can be sensitive and personal. Our team ensures a safe and non-judgmental environment, respecting your privacy and confidentiality at all times.

Making Informed Decisions:

During your contraceptive counseling sessions, we will explore the advantages, disadvantages, and potential side effects of each method. Our providers will also consider your medical history, including any current medications, to ensure the recommended methods are safe and effective for you.

Together, we will discuss:

  • Effectiveness rates of various methods
  • Convenience and ease of use
  • Potential side effects and health risks
  • Impact on your menstrual cycle and overall health
  • Cost and accessibility
  • Your personal comfort and preferences
