Asking Your Doctor about Birth Control

Studies have shown using contraception consistently and correctly reduces rates of unplanned pregnancy.

For many women, that is easier said than done. Complicated lives, medical issues, and safety concerns are important factors to consider when choosing the best birth control method. And what matters in the end is having a birth control method that meets individual needs.

SHAPE Magazine interviewed Section faculty Dr. Julie Chor about “3 Birth Control Questions You Must Ask Your Doctor”. Dr. Chor is an experienced contraceptive counselor, and in the article she advises all women to talk to their doctor about birth control options. She stresses the basics, such as asking how often you need to remember to take a form of contraception and if that realistically fits into your lifestyle.

Earlier this year, FitPregnancy asked Dr. Chor about the best postpartum birth control and she gave her expert advice about how IUDs help attain a healthy pregnancy interval.

Dr. Chor can answer your questions about birth control during her clinic hours at the University of Chicago Hospitals where she provides contraceptive counseling and family planning services. Make an appointment here.
