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