Birth Control Methods & Early Pregnancy Options
The Women’s Specialty Center at Stamford Health is here to help with family planning and contraception options. Our expert staff of board-certified OB-GYNs and nurses can advise on the effectiveness, side effects, and convenience of each contraceptive method to help determine the most appropriate method for you. If you think you might be pregnant, our Early Pregnancy Assessment Program can help determine if the pregnancy is viable and provide a referral to our OB-GYNs, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, or geneticists.

Contraceptive Services Offered
For most women, birth control, or contraception, is a matter of choosing from the many safe and effective options available. However, people with complex medical issues like high blood pressure or a bleeding disorder may require specialized consultation and monitoring for contraception.

We also offer sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing. Our contraceptive services include:
- Hormonal birth control methods (including IUDs, pills, vaginal ring, and implants).
- Non-hormonal birth control methods (such as condoms, diaphragms, and certain IUDs).
- Emergency contraception.
- Female tubal sterilization.
