Starting a family is a wonderful, life-changing decision that many women are not ready to make.

Our team in Lawrence, KS can make a professional recommendation when it comes to selecting the best birth control for your needs. Our physicians can also discuss the benefits and drawbacks of the different available options and answer any questions you may have.

Treatment Options

At Lawrence Family Practice Center, we offer a wide range of contraceptive options to suit your unique situation. Depending on your needs and future plans, one of our family physicians may offer you any of the following:

  • Birth control pills (hormonal or nonhormonal)
  • IUD (intrauterine device)
  • Birth control implant (Nexplanon)
  • Tubal ligation

While contraceptives are a great option to prevent unwanted pregnancy, they do not all protect from STDs (sexually transmitted diseases), infections, or HIV. This is why it's important to take multiple steps to protect your sexual and reproductive health.

Contraceptive management FAQs

How do birth control pills work?

Birth control pills contain synthetic hormones that prevent a woman from ovulating. When a woman does not ovulate, she is less likely to get pregnant. Lawrence Family Practice Center can recommend this form of contraception to women who do not have any contraindications to taking it. We perform a comprehensive health assessment to make sure that the pill is a good fit for each woman.

How does an IUD work?

An IUD is a small, T-shaped device that is inserted into the uterus. IUDs are made of different materials but generally work by inhibiting sperm from fertilizing an egg. One of the best benefits of an IUD is that there is no need to remember to take it every day or before sex. It can be inserted and then forgotten about for several years.
