Well Woman Care Services

Annual Exams

Annual wellness exams involve reviewing any pertinent health conditions, managing your medications, and undergoing a physical exam. At Mile High, we encourage all our patients to schedule their yearly exam as a form of preventative care. This helps to detect any problems early, alleviating the stress of catching them too late.

Contraception Options

Contraception is an important part of your preventative care routine. Whether you are looking to start using contraception for the first time or if you want to switch to a new method, Mile High is here to support and help you make the right decision. We offer contraception education, birth control management, and can administer birth control shots.

Mood Management

Mental health has a significant impact on your physical health, so it’s important to take care of both at the same time. Childbirth, menopause, and your menstrual cycle can cause you to have changes in your mood. Because of this, we offer mood management and mental health services for women of all ages alongside our other types of care.

Sexual Pain or Dysfunction

Sexual pain and dysfunction is not a normal part of reproductive health. If you are experiencing any sort of discomfort, schedule a visit with us today. Our providers can help find the reason you are having pain and create a treatment plan to help remedy it.

STI Testing and Care

Sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and care should be a part of your regular healthcare routine. Like many other health conditions, it is best to catch them as early as possible to avoid them becoming more severe. We offer testing for all STIs that can be easily completed anytime.

How to Choose the Best Contraception Option For You

When you are determining which contraception option is best for you, the first thing you need to figure out is why you’re looking to start using it. This will help you figure out which category of contraceptive is more appropriate for you. For example, if you are looking to prevent pregnancy, you will have more options to choose from than if you are looking to prevent an STI. 

During a contraceptive consultation, your provider will review this reasoning, your current medical conditions, and any concerns you have about making this change in your healthcare routine. Your age, sexual activity, and family planning ideas are also things that will be considered. Each form of contraception has different side effects, so it’s also important to be aware of those and how they could impact your overall health. 

3 Contraception Options Explained

Women today have a variety of options when choosing contraception. Our job is to help you choose the best option based on your medical history, preferences, and plans for the future. 
Birth Control Pills
Birth control pills are a hormone prescription medication that can be taken orally each day to prevent pregnancy. 
Intrauterine Devices (IUD)
An IUD is a tiny device inserted into your uterus to protect against pregnancy for up to 12 years (depending on the type of IUD you choose). These devices are available in hormone and non-hormone varieties.
Birth Control Implant
An implant is a tiny stick-like device, similar to an IUD but shaped like a matchstick. This implant is injected into your arm and releases hormones that can prevent pregnancy for up to 5 years.

Do you still have questions about starting contraception?

Do all contraceptive methods have side effects?

 Like any medication, all contraceptive options can have side effects. Some include weight gain, hormone changes, and changes to your menstruation cycle. 

Can I use birth control pills to stop my period?

Yes. Some birth control options allow you to menstruate more infrequently than normal, or can even be used to “skip a period.” It’s always important to talk to your doctor about doing this before you try.

How soon should I stop using contraceptives if I want to get pregnant?

If you are ready to try to conceive, you can stop using contraceptives at any point. 

How effective is using contraception in preventing pregnancy?
No method of contraception is 100% effective in preventing pregnancy. Sterilization is the only permanent method of contraception.
What happens when I stop taking birth control?

If you want to stop taking birth control, always consult your doctor first. You may experience irregular menstruation, hormone fluctuation, and changes in your mood after you stop using contraception.
