Birth Control Q & A
Most frequent questions and answers
Short-acting hormonal methods of contraception prevent pregnancy by altering your ovulation so you don’t release an egg. Birth control pills, patches, and shots are examples of short-acting hormonal options. These sorts of contraception must be used as prescribed to be effective.
An IUD is an example of a LARC and prevents pregnancy by altering sperm movement to the egg. These sorts of contraception protect you from pregnancy for 3 to 10 years, counting on the sort or brand. If you are interested in an IUD, please call the office to schedule an appointment to discuss IUD options.
The team at DrSunitaGynae.com might not be ready to insert an IUD, but they will remove one quickly. To remove your IUD, your physician pulls on the IUD string, which causes the arms to fold up, and then pulls it out.
You may experience some spotting after removal, but no pain. Once the IUD is removed, you can get pregnant right away.
