Best for you: The best birth control method is the one that you like and the one that you will use. There are many options. Any obgyn should be able to guide you through the important decision.

Please see a gyn: For my pts in boca raton, florida, i discuss the various forms and then based on what the pts wants and if there are any other health or gyn issues a determination can be made , so please schedule an apt with a board certified obgyn to discuss your choices, as you need a method that is tailored for you, what is right for a friend or co- worker may not be right for you.
