Birth Control Options
Choosing a birth control that is right for you is a very personal choice. What works for your friend… may not work for you… or it might! We are happy to give you all the information and help you decide.
REMEMBER: No form of birth control can protect you from every single sexually transmitted disease – but Condoms (both male and female) come close!
The Umbrella Clinic is just like other physician led clinics, except we focus on Sexual Health. When you arrive, just present your health card and we will bill OHIP for the services that are covered (some things are not always covered). The main difference with us is we are a female led clinic with experienced staff and short wait times. You can contact us and we will get you in quickly to discuss your options .
There are so many Birth Control options out there, it was hard to decide how to organize it all…. so here is what we came up with.
- IUDs (Mirena, Kyleena, Jaydess)
- The Shot (Depo-Provera, DMPA)
- The Ring (Nuva-Ring)
- The Patch (Evra)
- The Pill (Too many to name)
- The Mini-Pill (Micronor, Movisse)
We are a proud member of the Rapid Access IUC Centres of Excellence (RAICE). IUC stands for intrauterine contraception. It describes any device placed in the uterus to help prevent pregnancy – i.e., an IUD. We offer timely access to IUD’s (usually under a week) and insert/remove a high number of them (usually 6-8 a week).
