Birth Control Options

At Presidential Women’s Center we offer many low-cost birth control options. We have over 36 years experience in caring for women’s health care needs. We are here to help you find the method that will work best for you.

One of the most common methods of birth control is the pill. The birth control pill is simple to use, just one pill taken daily. Significant side effects are rare. Many patients find that trying a different brand can offer a good solution if you’ve been unhappy with side effects in the past. Your practitioner can work with you to find the option that will be most helpful.

The Depo Provera shot is an injection which lasts three months which is a great option for women looking to avoid the daily task of pill-taking.

Another popular option is the Nuva Ring which is placed inside the vagina once a month and works by releasing a small dose of hormones to prevent pregnancy.

At Presidential Women’s Center we also offer Nexplanon which is an implant in the upper arm. This is a more long term birth control, suited for women looking to prevent pregnancy for the next three years.

In the category of IUDS we offer Skyla, Mirena and ParaGard. Skyla and Mirena function using a very low dose of hormones. The ParaGard is a copper IUD and therefore has no hormones. Whichever IUD you choose, you can count on effective, long-term birth control. These options are good choices for those looking to prevent an unintended pregnancy for a span of 5-10 years.

For those women who are looking for a more permanent option, a tubal ligation is a great solution for those who are certain they do not wish to become pregnant at any point in the future. A tubal ligation is a simple outpatient procedure which lasts less than ten minutes and we use moderate sedation so you are sleepy and comfortable. Having a tubal ligation at Presidential Women’s Center means no hospital stay is required so you can be back in your own home the same day. Tubal ligation generally involves a quick recovery and most patients find they are able to return to most normal activities within a few short days.

Even better, during the month of July, a special promotion enables you to have the tubal ligation at a $100 discount.

Whichever option you choose, we are here to support you on your journey to good health.

Our female Nurse Practitioners are compassionate and highly skilled professionals who will provide personalized care tailored to your needs.
