    What BC options does your office most commonly suggest? Trying to compare what my clinic usually offers to what others offer. Thanks in advance.

    When I worked in infertility we usually used Yasmin if we needed to alter a menstrual cycle. The PA I worked with loved Nuvaring and recommended that a lot.

    I don't work in a clinic, but I can address what our delivering docs recommend. If you have a stable, compliant patient, it's the Pill. For others who might have issues getting refills or remembering to take pills, Mirena and Implanon seem to be the choices. Depo Provera for the in-between patients. You also see Nuva Ring and the patch occasionally.

    We seem to do a lot of Paragards. For those on a budget and without insurance, we suggest OCPs, usually Sronyx.

    Thanks for the answer. We do a lot of pills, depo, and mirena but I'm wondering which one people complain about the most side effects, etc. Any advice on that?

    Also, do they still do Implanon? We never do them. I thought they had been discontinued because of problems, honestly.

    I am new to the ob/gyn office setting so its too early for me to say "what I see the most given" is.....but we still do implanon. We only have 1 provider trained to do it so I don't see it a ton (we are a huge practice with 7 providers). The majority of the pts that get it are usually unable to tolerate the combination pills. They use it as a "last resort".
