What birth control methods are available from my health care provider?
Discuss your birth control needs and preferences with your health care provider. Many methods are available from your doctor and can be arranged for during an office visit. Some options, such as a
diaphragm (used with spermicide) or a
cervical cap (also used with
spermicide), require fitting, which can also be done during an office visit. An intrauterine device (IUD)
must be placed by a health care professional.
