Call Dr. Tucker or book your birth control consultation online today. 

What’s the purpose of contraception?

Contraception, or birth control, prevents sperm from fertilizing a healthy egg. Just as there are many different forms of birth control, each method accomplishes this goal in a different way. 

If you’re sexually active and don’t want to get pregnant, then contraception is a must. Dr. Tucker can teach you about the many types of contraception available today and help you decide which to use. 

Some contraception offers permanent protection, but most options are reversible. Most modern options have high rates of effectiveness as long as you use them correctly. 

What are my options for contraception?

Dr. Tucker specializes in providing contraception for sexually active patients. Some forms have additional benefits, such as protection from sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or regulating certain medical conditions like hormonal acne. 

Your options include:

Oral contraceptives

Oral contraceptives, or birth control pills, are prescribed oral medications you take daily to stop ovulation (the monthly release of a fertile egg).


You can get birth control patches in the mail by prescription. They stick to your skin and release hormones transdermally. 

IUD Implants

You can also get an implanted IUD - a contraceptive device that gets inserted into the uterus that helps prevent pregnancy. 



If necessary, Lori can help facilitate a sterilization procedure. This is also known as getting your 'tubes tied'. 

Other options include diaphragms, vaginal rings, and sterilization procedures. 

How do I choose the right contraception?

Not everyone will have the same preferences for contraceptives. You should discuss each method in detail with Dr. Tucker, who also reviews your medical history to make specific recommendations. 

There are many factors to consider as you make your choice of contraception, including:

  • Rates of effectiveness
  • Ease of use
  • Fitting a contraceptive into your routine
  • Any conditions you have that a contraceptive can treat
  • Whether or not you want to get pregnant someday
  • Whether or not you want protection from STDs

Many people need to try several forms of contraception before they find one they can trust and use consistently. Dr. Tucker listens to your concerns and can tailor your recommendations based on your experiences. 

Contraception lets you avoid pregnancy before you’re fully ready and willing to commit to parenthood. Call Lori Tucker, DO, for telemedicine contraception management, or book an appointment online today.
