Prevention …

Together we will find the most suitable method of contraception for you. This requires a detailed anamnesis: cyclical complaints, previous illnesses as well as possible risk factors lead to our recommendation. In addition to the “mechanical” methods (condom and diaphragm), the contraceptive options can be divided into two groups:

… at the scene: locally in the uterus

Intrauterine contraception does not interfere with the natural hormonal cycle and is a modern, practical, long-term and body-friendly method of contraception. All IUDs are inserted into the uterus during the period after the administration of a painkiller in our practice, where they develop their effect in a targeted manner.

Copper spiral / ball / chain

The release of copper ions creates a local environment in which sperm cannot survive. No effect on the cycle, but often heavier menstrual bleeding, sometimes more painful.

Hormone IUDs: Mirena®, Kyleena®, Jaydess®, Levosert®

Unlike the pill, hormonal IUDs do not suppress the hormonal cycle. These IUDs are intended for 3-5 years and, by changing local factors, prevent fertilization and implantation of a fertilized egg cell. Positive side effects are usually the reduction in strength and discomfort of the bleeding. The preparations are called Mirena®, Kyleena®, Jaydess® and Levosert®. Because they are well tolerated, these IUDs are also used by women who have not yet given birth to children. Teenagers wear spirals too.

… by suppressing the natural cycle

Any form of contraception outside the uterus is based on the systemic administration of hormones that suppress ovulation.


There are so-called combined pills (progestin and estrogens) as well as pure progestin pills (“breastfeeding pill”). Talking to the gynecologist is essential when choosing the preparation.

Morning-after pill

Should it ever happen that you accidentally did not use (correctly) contraception, you may need the morning-after pill. You can get these over the counter in the pharmacy. Please contact us anyway so that we can analyze your contraceptive method together and optimize it if necessary.

Vaginal ring

Estrogens and gestagens are continuously absorbed through the vaginal mucosa for 3 weeks. Suitable for women who do not want to think about contraception every day.

Contraceptive patch

Continuous absorption of hormones through the skin.

Contraceptive stick

Kontinuierliche Abgabe von Hormonen in den Oberarm.
