Complex Contraception

Our Services

Reproductive age women with complex medical conditions may not always view birth control as their first health care priority, but they are often equally as likely to get pregnant as their healthy counterparts despite the risk to themselves and their baby. For those that seek to avoid an unintended pregnancy or plan to start a family and have a complex medical condition, our complex contraception clinic provides access to the highest quality of care with conditions that complicate contraception and preconception.
