Birth Control & Family Planning

A Compassionate Approach to Birth Control and Family Planning


Birth control is used to reduce the risk of unwanted pregnancy. Our providers are here to help you make the birth control choice that works best for your age, medical history and lifestyle. You have many choices when it comes to birth control and family planning.

Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) methods include IUDs and implants such as Nexplanon. Hormonal options include oral contraceptives (the pill), the vaginal ring, and the shot (injectable Depo Provera). Barrier methods include condoms and spermicides.

If you are seeking permanent birth control, we perform minimally-invasive, pelviscopic, bilateral tubal ligation services at both Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, MA and at Baystate Noble Hospital in Westfield, MA. This permanent birth control procedure has a quick recovery time.

If you are interested in more information about any of these methods, please call to schedule an appointment.
