Family Planning Q & A

What is family planning?

Family planning can help you take charge of your fertility. Many women would like to delay or prevent pregnancy. With family planning, you can control when you become pregnant. 

At Magnolia OB/GYN Clinic, patients receive expert guidance on family planning methods. The providers help you prevent pregnancy using reliable contraception. They also help patients explore nonhormonal birth control, including fertility awareness methods and barrier birth control such as condoms. 

How can I prevent pregnancy?

If your family planning goal is to prevent pregnancy, hormonal contraceptives are an excellent option. These medications discourage pregnancy by preventing ovulation. Some methods also thin your uterine lining to prevent implantation. 

Magnolia OB/GYN Clinic offers a wide range of hormonal contraception, including:

  • Birth control pills
  • Nexplanon┬«
  • NuvaRing┬«
  • Hormonal intrauterine devices (IUDs)

If you prefer to avoid hormonal contraceptives, fertility awareness can help. This method allows you to track your menstrual cycle to determine when you're most likely to conceive. Using this information, you can avoid intercourse on your most fertile days. You can also use barrier methods like condoms to prevent pregnancy on fertile days.

Nonhormonal IUDs are also available. And if you don't want any future pregnancies, Magnolia OB/GYN Clinic offers permanent sterilization. 

Which family planning method is right for me?

Each woman has unique health needs and goals. During a visit, your provider asks whether your planning on future pregnancies. They also review your medical history and discuss any chronic conditions.

If hormonal birth control is the best fit, your provider helps you choose the right type. They can prescribe the birth control pill, or arrange for an IUD or implant. If you're thinking about sterilization, your provider offers expert advice. They work with you as you weigh your options. 

Can I get pregnant after using family planning?

Most forms of birth control, including IUDs, are reversible. If you decide to get pregnant, your provider explains how to stop using your contraceptive. In some cases, this process may be as simple as stopping the pill. But if you have an IUD or implant, you may need to visit the office so your provider can remove it. 

Many women are able to get pregnant right away. But sometimes, it takes a few months to return to your regular cycle. Your provider can help you determine when you're most likely to conceive. If you're having trouble getting pregnant, Magnolia OB/GYN Clinic offers infertility treatments.
