Family medicine doctors and their care teams work with patients to meet their birth control needs.

We routinely prescribe and implement a broad range of birth control products — from pills to shots to intrauterine devices.

Receiving IUDs from the Department of Family Medicine

The intrauterine device, or IUD, is a birth control device that is placed inside the woman’s womb. This safe, reversible approach to birth control has been used for many years.

Family medicine doctors can insert and remove IUDs in the office.

If you're interested in exploring your birth control options or you have questions about IUDs, contact one of our family medicine offices to make an appointment.
