Family Planning

What is family planning?

Women have the right to control when and if they wish to have children. Family planning can help you become pregnant, space out your pregnancies, or prevent an unwanted pregnancy. 

Why should I consider family planning?

Family planning supports your reproductive freedom, your emotional wellness, and your physical health. Family planning offers a variety of benefits, such as:

  • Increase in early prenatal care
  • Improved birth outcomes
  • Decreased risk of maternal and infant mortality
  • Reduced chance of high-risk pregnancy
  • Reduced risk of reproductive cancers

Family planning prevents unwanted pregnancies and reduces the need for abortion. If you wish to become pregnant, family planning improves your chances of having a healthy pregnancy and delivery.

What is involved in family planning services?

Family planning begins with a confidential consultation with your caring physician at Adefris & Toppin Women’s Specialists. Your physician begins with a review of your medical history, and asks questions about your sexual activity and your reproductive goals and concerns.

Based on your individual goals and health needs, your physician recommends family planning services for you, such as:

Contraception counseling

To prevent unwanted pregnancy, your Adefris & Toppin Women’s Specialists physician recommends birth control options. These may include condoms, birth control pills, an intrauterine device (IUD), contraceptive implants, ovulation tracking, or surgical contraception procedures.

Preconception counseling

Preconception counseling involves an in-depth discussion about your current health and how you can prepare your body for conception and pregnancy. It also includes health screenings for risk factors that may contribute to pregnancy complications

Infertility treatments

A fertility evaluation can help determine the reason you’ve been unable to conceive. Based on this evaluation, your physician recommends treatment options. The physicians at Adefris & Toppin Women’s Specialists offer the most advanced, evidence-based fertility treatment options to help women conceive.
