Family Planning Q&A

What type of contraception is best for my family planning needs?

Choosing the right contraceptive is a considered decision, especially if you think you may want children in the future. Here are some questions you may want to ask your provider before you begin birth control.

 

  • How effective is birth control?
  • What birth control methods does your insurance cover?
  • Are there any risks associated with birth control?
  • Will birth control react with your current medication?
  • Does it take long to get pregnant once you stop birth control?

 

The providers at Advanced Obstetrics & Gynecology, LLC, listen to your reasons for wanting birth control and what your long-term plans are, then give you the most suitable options for your needs.


What family planning methods are available?

There are four main types of family planning birth control. These include:

Hormonal contraception

Hormonal contraceptives come in injection, patch, pill, implant, and vaginal ring form. They use estrogen and progesterone hormones to prevent pregnancy. 

Barrier methods

Barrier methods include male and female condoms, diaphragm, and sponge. They block sperm from reaching the egg. 

Intrauterine devices (IUDs)

IUDs last 3-10 years, depending on the type you choose. They stop sperm from reaching and fertilizing an egg. 

Permanent contraception

Tubal ligation is a permanent contraceptive that stops eggs from traveling from the ovaries to the uterus and is also known as having your tubes tied.

Your provider helps you choose the most effective method of birth control based on your current lifestyle and preferences.


When should you consider infertility family planning services?

An infertility evaluation identifies why you haven't become pregnant. Many women choose a fertility evaluation because:

 

  • They or their partner have known fertility problems
  • They're over 35 and been trying to conceive for over six months
  • They're under 35 and been trying to conceive for over a year
  • They have an irregular menstrual cycle.

 

Once your provider knows what's causing infertility, they create a fertility plan. Even if they can't identify the root cause, they can still put in place actions that improve your chances of conceiving. 


What can cause infertility?

Many factors can cause infertility. They include:

 

  • Maternal age
  • Ovulation problems
  • Extended use of birth control
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
