What are the most popular forms of birth control today?
I can’t say in our practice that there is one form of birth control more popular than another; it is patient-dependent. Some people prefer permanent sterilization in the form of bilateral tubal ligation. Other choices depend on how a patient would like to space their children. Patients may choose long-acting, reversible contraceptive devices such as Nexplanon, which is inserted in the arm and good for three years, or an IUD, which can be good for up to 10 years. They may decide they would like children closer in age and prefer oral contraceptives, or Depo Provera injection.
Why is it okay for my birth control
to make me skip my period for months?
It is okay not to have a menses if you are on birth control because birth control is keeping the lining very thin.
