Birth control pills and family planning consultations allow women to take charge of their sexual health. Offering a number of options for his patients to choose from, Dr. Reza Ahmadinia of OBGYN High Desert, provides information and instruction for the proper use of contraceptives. Among the choices a woman has is the hormonal birth control pill. Taken daily, it prevents pregnancy, minimizes the intensity of menstrual cramps, and even improves the quality of the skin making it less prone to breakouts and acne.

Other options that Dr. Reza Ahmadinia offers Apple Valley and Victorville women include:

  • Mini Pills. Ideal for nursing mothers who don’t want to get pregnant again right away, this form of contraceptive is a low dose of progesterone and nothing else.
  • IUDs. An Inter Uterine Device eliminates the need for birth control pills. It is implanted in the uterus and makes periods light or non-existent while a woman wears it.
  • Birth Control Shots. Given by Dr. Reza Ahmadinia every three months, birth control shots eliminate many women’s periods altogether. In order to be effective, though, women cannot miss getting the shots every three months.
  • Barrier Contraception. Women can be fitted with a diaphragm or ask that their partner wears a condom during sexual intercourse.
Each has its own list of benefits and risks which Dr. Reza Ahmadinia explains at the time of your visit. If you haven’t taken or used birth control before, make sure to ask the questions that you have so you’ll be better informed how each option works. Being an empowered patient means you’re a patient in-the-know.
