We offer many different contraceptive methods to our HerMD patients. We are proud to offer both hormonal and non-hormonal options, and we work with our patients to determine a method that fits with their lifestyle.

How effective is contraception?

The exact efficacy depends on the type of contraception used, but most contraceptive methods are highly (around 90-99%) effective when used as instructed.

What are the most common side effects of contraception?

The most common side effects depend on the type of contraception utilized. In patients who experience side effects, most are short-lived. The most common side effects of contraceptive pills include: breast tenderness, nausea, and mood changes. The most common side effects of IUDs include cramping and temporary abnormalities in bleeding patterns. However, it is important to note that the vast majority of people will not experience side effects.
