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.

    What a great experience! The staff is fabulous. From the moment I walked in and all the way through the check out process, I felt at ease. It is a very comfortable, unpretentious environment. A really cool, trendy waiting area and the rooms are the same. Not your typical “doc office” vibe. Such a great concept to be able to “one-stop-shop” as far as women’s issues and cosmetic issues are concerned! 🙂

  • Shannon Wright


    Wow, just wow. Appointment at 2pm and I’m on my way home at 3! In that hour I was respected, cared for and had my questions answered. Laura made me feel at ease and all staff were very helpful and professional. Thank you as I’m coming from a Doctor I have been with for a decade. I could no longer be made to wait up to 2+ hours in an uncomfortable waiting room only to sit in a gown for another hour after that! Enough was enough. So happy I found HerMD and Laura Reviere.

    I was very impressed with the front desk staff which was friendly and courteous. Dr. Davidson Spent a long time with me answering all my concerns and discussing throughly the medical issues. She was professional and easy to talk to. The overall atmosphere was very pleasant. I would recommend HerMD to everyone.

  • Mindy Preciado


    It is such an amazing feeling to leave your physicians office, knowing you have been heard and there is a plan! After many years of not getting answers, it took 1 visit with the team at HerMD. HIGHLY recommend! Don’t wait – women must advocate for themselves!

    Love Dr. Davidson! She’s the best around!

  • Teresa Foreman


    Danielle was amazing. I had a hydrafacial and a dermaplane and can’t wait to go for my next one! She was very professional and personable. I enjoyed every minute of it!!

  • Julie Logue


    Kendra is simply amazing. She really goes over and above to reveal the best you. The ZO line of skincare products are the best too!

  • Heather Richmund


    Truly the best women’s health doctor appointment I have ever experienced!

  • Lexie Holden


    Literally the best place for women’s health. I feel confident, safe, and like all my issues are always addressed

  • Lauren Beaty

    My daughter is 16 and I wanted her to talk to someone in women’s health and establish care. Michelle Wallace made her feel so comfortable and as a mother of a teen, that’s hard to find. I cannot say enough great things about her. We will definitely recommend Her MD to friends and family.

  • Jessica Glaser


    I had went to an few offices prior to this one looking for answers. The office staff was kind, Courtney Cortez was wonderful, she explained everything she was thinking and really made me feel informed and at ease. A far cry from the provider I had seen previously. Everyone was pleasant from the front desk, the nurse, the phlebotomist just wonderful. Best doctor office experience I’ve had in years.
