Complex Contraception & Family Planning

A woman of African descent and her doctor are indoors in a medical clinic. They are sitting and talking about the woman's health problems.

At UBMD Obstetrics & Gynecology's Complex Contraception and Family Planning clinic, our care team empowers women with different contraception options to suit their health needs. 

Many times, women with certain medical conditions or concerns may be told that they can't use medical contraceptives, but seeing a specialist trained and focused on complex contraceptions can provide you with more options. Rachelle St. Onge MD, MPH, a gynecologist and obstetrician with a specialty focus on complex contraception, leads UBMD's complex contraception services.

Our team believes it's important that our patients decide to become pregnant on their terms, with all options available to them.

With our comprehensive contraceptive care, our team helps you select the right choice for your health and lifestyle.
