Our gynecologist can discuss the range of birth control methods available to prevent unwanted pregnancy and can assist you in finding the option that best suits your needs and lifestyle. You can choose between birth control pills, birth control patches, shots, birth control rings, condoms, and IUDs among other options.

IUDs are frequently touted as being a mistake-proof, longer lasting form of birth control. An IUD is inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. The IUD releases small amounts of hormones to prevent conception and can last anywhere from 3 to 12 years, depending on the kind of IUD you choose. The IUD is usually chosen by women who do not plan to become pregnant for several years. If you’re considering an IUD, you may want to speak to your Hackensack OBGYN to determine whether it is the best option for your needs and goals.

Birth control pills are prescription pills that are taken daily, at about the same time each day, to prevent pregnancy. The pill contains estrogen and progestin which prevents conception and pregnancy. Birth control is 99% effective for women who take the pill correctly, at the same time each day. Certain antibiotics can interfere with the drug’s efficacy. Additionally, the pill isn’t right for everyone. Women who smoke, who have a history of breast cancer, who have blood clotting disorders, who have had a heart attack or stroke, have high blood pressure, or will undergo a procedure requiring bed rest, should consider other birth control methods. Speak to your Ridgewood, New Jersey gynecologist to discuss your options.

Other birth control options include birth control shots, birth control rings, condoms, and diaphragms. Speak to your Wayne, New Jersey gynecologist to understand your options and make a decision that works best for you. Our family planning services can be tailored to your needs.

Preparing for Your Pap Smear: Cervical Cancer Prevention

A Pap Smear is a test that screens for cervical cancer. During the procedure, a qualified gynecologist, like Dr. Shakiba will meet with you, discuss your health history, and then perform this important test. Cells from the cervix are scraped and then tested for abnormal growths. The procedure is one of the best ways to diagnose cervical cancer and to prevent death from this disease. A Pap Smear can detect changes in your cells early to get you the preventative gynecological treatment you may need to prolong your life and secure your health. Most women have their first Pap Smear when they become sexually active or when they turn 21. Most OBGYNs recommend that women have a Pap Smear every 3 years, though you may need the test more frequently if you fall into a high-risk group.

How to prepare for your Pap Smear:

Having a Pap Smear as recommended can reduce your chances of getting cervical cancer by as much as 80 percent. If you haven’t had a Pap Smear in a while, consider making an appointment with Women’s Pelvic Surgery
