Family Planning

What family planning birth control options are available?

To prevent unwanted pregnancies, the team at Associates in Obstetrics & Gynecology offers a wide range of contraceptives, including:

  • Birth control pills and patches
  • Intrauterine device (IUD)
  • Vaginal ring

Also as part of the family planning services, the team can explain the use of condoms as birth control and their role in preventing sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), as well as other non-prescription birth control methods, like diaphragms.

For permanent birth control, when you no longer want to have children, Associates in Obstetrics & Gynecology offers tubal ligation.

Which birth control method is right for me?

The right birth control method depends on a variety of factors, including your personal and family medical history and your plans for a family. The team at Associates in Obstetrics & Gynecology takes the time to review your information and help you make the most informed decision.

If you’re looking for a birth control option that will allow you to have children in the near future, you may be a candidate for birth control pills, patches, or the vaginal ring. These methods deliver a steady dose of hormones to prevent sperm from fertilizing the egg.

If you’re unable to tolerate hormones, you may need to use non-hormonal birth control methods, like condoms or a diaphragm.

The team at Associates in Obstetrics & Gynecology also offers in-office placement of an IUD, a device that goes into your uterus to prevent pregnancy. They offer both hormonal and non-hormonal IUDs.

If you’re sure you don’t want more children, your provider may recommend a tubal ligation. This minimally invasive, outpatient surgical procedure focuses on sealing your fallopian tubes to prevent eggs from traveling to meet sperm. Your doctor makes two small incisions just below your navel to seal the tubes, which heal quickly and leave virtually no scars.

How can family planning help me get ready for a baby?

When you’re ready to start planning for a baby, the staff at Associates in Obstetrics & Gynecology offers comprehensive pregnancy services, including treatment for infertility. They can recommend the right way to stop using your chosen method of birth control and prepare your body to support a healthy pregnancy.

Your Associates in Obstetrics & Gynecology provider customizes a prenatal care plan and can perform pregnancy testing in-office. After you confirm your pregnancy, the team provides comprehensive obstetrics care to guide you to labor and delivery.
