Family planning is very important for both single and married women. It is more than just about birth control, it is about being ready to start or increase your family. The experienced team at Premier OB/GYN in Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, FL, and Plantation, FL provides family planning advice and assistance.

Birth Control

Birth control should begin as soon as you are considering sexual activity. Having children is a wonderful thing when it is welcome and the time is right. Many different types of birth control are available to make sure that no unexpected or unwanted pregnancies occur. Knowledge is power. The more you know, the better able you are to make educated decisions. We provide family planning services in Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, FL.

IUD

IUDs (Intrauterine devices) are 99% effective in preventing pregnancy. They are placed in the uterus by a gynecologist during an outpatient visit. You really don't have to think about it again until your situation changes, and you want to get pregnant. They can remain effective for as long as 10 years. 

Hormonal  birth control

When it comes to hormonal birth control, there are options. You can choose the birth control pill, which has been around for more than 50 years. The pill is an old standby but it must be taken regularly.  You can also choose patches and implants, which are all quite effective.   

Barrier Method

Barrier methods include things like condoms, sponges, and diaphragms. They are all easy to use and inexpensive but have a higher failure rate. 

Sterilization

If your family is complete, then a permanent solution is sterilization. It is designed to be permanent, keep that in mind when making the decision to have the procedure done. 

Fertility Counseling and Treatment

Family planning also includes help with conceiving. For some people, getting pregnant is an easy process, for others, it can take years and many procedures. If you are not getting pregnant easily, the doctor can do tests and discuss the options that are available to help. It can be a long process and your OBGYN will be there with you every step of the way, 

For help with family planning in Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, FL, and Plantation, FL Premier OB/GYN offers all the services you may need. To make an appointment, contact the offices in Hollywood, Pembrook Pines, FL at (954) 961-9993  or Plantation, FL at (954) 791-2810.

Tags: Fibroids  

Irregular periods, frequent urination, and pelvic pain can be quite a nuisance to deal with and quite concerning. These are often signs of uterine fibroids. Rather than suffer in silence, one of our practitioners may run tests to see if the problem is fibroids and find an appropriate course of treatment. But in the meantime, you may want to look at the most frequently asked questions about fibroids answered by our doctors at Premiere OB/GYN, serving Hollywood, Plantation, Pembroke Pines, FL, and the surrounding regions.

What Are Fibroids?

First and foremost, it's important to understand what fibroids are. They're growths that appear in the uterus. They're benign and can grow anywhere from the size of a small bean to the size of the entire uterus. It's possible to have one fibroid or multiple ones. Women of reproductive age are more likely to develop these. 

What Are the Signs of Fibroids?

Much of the time, a woman may never know she has a fibroid because they don't always cause symptoms. For the woman who does have symptoms, the issues that arise vary based on the location of the fibroid or fibroids. 

For example, heavy menstrual cycles are common with fibroids. The bleeding is sometimes prolonged and possibly has clotting. Pain in the pelvic region is also a common symptom. It's possible to have frequent urination. It may feel like a struggle to urinate at times, despite having the urge to go. Other possible signs include the following:

  • Anemia
  • Fatigue
  • Painful intercourse
  • Constipation

What Causes Fibroids?

The exact cause of fibroids isn't known. However, it's believed that heighten levels of growth factors or hormonal changes are responsible. Research indicates that women with high levels of progesterone and estrogen are more likely to have fibroids. 

Your age, weight, and race tend to play a role, and so does a vitamin D deficiency. Women who consume lower amounts of green vegetables or who drink alcohol habitually have a greater risk. 

How Are Fibroids Diagnosed?

Sometimes, a doctor from one of our practices, either in Hollywood, Plantation, or Pembroke Pines, FL, can tell you have fibroids during a routine pelvic examination. In other cases, a physician may find them on an ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Laparoscopy or hysteroscopy are other possible testing. 

Medications can be used to control the symptoms. In other cases, surgery may be suggested. 

At Premiere OB/GYN, serving Hollywood, Plantation, and Pembroke Pines, FL, and the general vicinity, we can help you manage your symptoms and assist with infertility if fibroids are causing it.
