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.

    I would recommend this practice/office to anyone. The people are friendly and attentive. The office is new, bright and pretty and Teri is amazing! I felt at ease and important from the time I walked in, to the time I left. Top-notch!

  • Stephanie Norris

    The whole experience with HerMD in Franklin TN from start to finish has been amazing. I was a new patient and met with Terri Greer. She was fantastic! She listened to all of my concerns and helped me sort through which options would be best for me. She spent over an hour with me and never once did I feel rushed or that she needed to get to the next appointment. She talked with me like a friend and never down to me if I had questions. I am so happy that I chose to go with HerMD and cannot recommend them enough!

    Such a great experience. I was very nervous about my appointment due to some abnormal test results I received from my primary doctor. Teri Greer made me feel heard. She told me all of the possible scenarios, but was very calming and helped me not stress about my condition. She really put me at ease. Terri is amazing and I would highly recommend!!!
