Gynecology services include birth control, such as the pill, injection, patch, and intrauterine device (IUD). While the most obvious reason to use birth control is to prevent an unwanted pregnancy, you may be surprised to learn that there are other health benefits. For example, the birth control pill can significantly reduce your risk of developing ovarian and endometrial cancers. It can also provide relief of PMS symptoms.
When you watch this video, you’ll hear a gynecologist describe some of the other benefits of using birth control. She explains the pill’s effect on your periods and describes how it can even improve the appearance of your skin.
