Dr. Velázquez Salim knows the the most effective contraceptive methods for family planning. Schedule your consultation to assess yourself and identify the best contraceptive for you depending on your lifestyle, your partner and your state of health. 

These are some of the methods used by Dr. Velázquez Salim:

subdermal implants

The implant is an etonorgestrel-based contraceptive method that is released evenly and regularly with a duration of up to 3 years. It is highly effective and is used when a pregnancy is not sought in the short term.

Intrauterine IUD (UC and hormonal)

IUDs are effective, safe and reversible contraceptive methods with a long-term effect, lasting 3 to 5 years. They do not affect lactation and do not interfere with sexual intercourse. It has a risk of pregnancy of 3 to 5%.


There are Intrauterine Devices that release levonorgestrel and it is completely safe. The possibility of pregnancy is almost nil; the tendency is to stop menstruating and this side effect is highly desirable, especially in women with heavier bleeding.

vaginal ring

It is a small ring that is placed inside the vagina once a month, for a period of three weeks, and one is removed to prevent pregnancy.  It is safe, effective and discreet, it releases ethenogestrel and ethinylestradiol.

oral hormones

Daily birth control pills contain hormones to prevent ovulation. Most of them are based on a strategic combination of estrogen and progesterone that prevent ovulation (the release of an egg during the monthly cycle).

Intramuscular injection

Contraceptive injections are given monthly, between days 7 and 9 of a woman's cycle. Injectable hormones inhibit ovulation, are practical, come in a prefilled syringe, ready for application, and are inexpensive.

OTB permanent contraception

It is a permanent contraceptive surgical method that is performed on the woman, the salpinges are tied and the redundant tissue is cut, avoiding the union of the sperm and the egg. It can be done by laparoscopy at any stage, be it postpartum, postabortion or transcesarean section.

Many of these methods require the supervision of an expert in hormone replacement to verify that the contraceptive is the right one for the patient according to her body.
