When you come to Garden OB/GYN for birth control, you have access to the full range of contraceptives. Your doctor reviews your medical history and performs a pelvic exam to be sure you don’t have any health concerns that would influence your choice of birth control. Your doctor takes time to talk with you about your options so you can make the best decision for your lifestyle.

LARCs are inserted once and stay in place a long time, continuously preventing pregnancy for years without worrying about taking pills or replacing rings or patches.
