Family planning is a medical strategy for your reproductive years that allows you to have the number of children you’d like when you’re ready to have them. It includes birth control methods that prevent pregnancy, pre-pregnancy counseling, and fertility treatments if you and your partner struggle to get pregnant.
When you arrive at FemmPro OB/GYN for a family planning appointment, your provider reviews your medical history, lifestyle, medications you take, and desire to have (or not have) children in the future. They help ensure you only become pregnant when you’re ready, or avoid becoming pregnant altogether if that’s your goal.
Some of the numerous family planning services available at FemmPro OB/GYN include:
If you’re getting ready to start the process of trying to become pregnant, your OB/GYN provider can counsel you about ways to do so effectively. They might recommend you undergo a physical examination and diagnostic testing prior to getting pregnant, take prenatal vitamins, get regular exercise and plenty of sleep, and eat a healthy diet.
Your provider helps you determine when you’re ovulating and the most fertile, to increase your chance of successfully getting pregnant.
If you’re sexually active but would like to avoid becoming pregnant, at least for now, the FemmPro OB/GYN team offers a wide array of short-acting, long-acting, and permanent birth control options. Examples include birth control pills, patches, implants, shots, intrauterine devices (IUDs), vaginal rings, tubal ligation, and hysterectomy.
If you and your partner struggle to get pregnant, your provider can help you figure out why. They might recommend specific fertility tests, a physical exam (including a pelvic exam), ultrasound, or other diagnostic procedures for both you and your partner.
They may suggest you make lifestyle changes, take fertility medications, have minimally invasive surgery to treat a gynecological condition or undergo fertility procedures – such as intrauterine insemination or in vitro fertilization (IVF).
