Finding the right family planning option may feel overwhelming. It seems there are SO many options. MBC Certified Nurse Midwife Jessica Bohren explains some of the most popular options right now are Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) like the IUDs Mirena or Paragard. There’s very little user error because they can be put in place for years without having to think about them. There are also fewer side effects than other forms of birth control like the Pill. There are many myths surrounding these forms of birth control, especially IUDs, but their safety and reliability is scientifically proven! Jessica suggests making an appointment at the Minnesota Birth Center to discuss any preconceptions you may have about different forms of birth control and decide what will work best for you.


Call MBC to make an appointment to discuss your family planning options (including the option to use inhaled nitrous oxide for IUD insertion) at (612) 545-5311 for our Minneapolis location or (651) 689-3988 for our St. Paul location!
