Contraception FAQs

What is contraception?

Contraceptive choices aren’t one-size-fits-all. Your Higher Ground Women’s Health provider takes the time to answer your questions, learn what you need, and find a contraception solution that works for you and your lifestyle. They offer a full range of well-being, contraceptive, fertility, and postpartum support — led by a highly-experienced, deeply caring, board-certified OB/GYN.

What is contraception and examples?

Contraception methods may include the following:

  • Oral contraceptive pills (OCP), also called birth control pills
  • Implants like Nexplanon® (etonogestrel)
  • Intrauterine devices (IUD)
  • Injectables like Depo-Provera®, Sayana Press®, or Noristerat (progestogen)
  • Patches
  • Vaginal rings
  • Condoms
  • Male and female sterilization
  • Lactational amenorrhea methods (LAM)
  • Withdrawal and fertility awareness-based methods

You can use contraception to prevent pregnancy, and some types will also protect you from sexually transmissible infections (STIs).

Why do I need contraception services?

The use of contraception prevents pregnancy-related health risks for women, especially adolescent girls. Your provider at Higher Ground Women’s Health understands that you deserve more. More time to tell your story, and:

  • More of a relationship with your provider
  • More human contact on the other end of the phone
  • More advocacy, access, and flexibility
  • More laughter, safety, and joy

When was the last time you were asked about pleasure — including sexual health — at your doctor’s visit? Being healthy means feeling good. Your provider wants you to feel safe enough to share. Don’t settle for less. Talking about contraception doesn’t have to be embarrassing or uncomfortable. Your provider is focused on just one thing — you.

Is a membership required for contraception services?

At Higher Ground Women’s Health, the direct care model allows patients and practitioners to develop a relationship based on comfort and trust. Straightforward pricing and a membership-based model lets them focus on what really matters.

You don’t have to get a membership. While membership with Higher Ground Women’s Health provides the most value, it’s not required. Patients have the opportunity to pay the individual costs associated with each visit instead.
