Family Planning Q & A

What is family planning?

Family planning involves education and resources that help you freely decide the number of children you have and how many years apart they are. Whether you want to have many children or none at all, Dr. Morales offers family planning services to support your decision.

What does family planning involve?

Family planning can involve many different things, depending on your unique situation. For example, if you’re sexually active and don’t want to get pregnant, family planning may include contraception counseling.

Dr. Morales enjoys providing her patients with the education necessary to make informed choices about their reproductive and sexual health. She’s always happy to discuss sexual education issues, such as the best ways to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.

If you do want to get pregnant, Dr. Morales can help you plan for a successful pregnancy. She offers preconception counseling services to hopeful parents, which may include:

  • Risk assessment for any potential pregnancy complications
  • Nutrition advice
  • Recommendations to reduce any risk factors, such as quitting smoking
  • Infertility management if you’re having trouble getting pregnant

Who is family planning for?

Family planning is a fundamental human right available to all people of all ages. Whether you want to start a family, Dr. Morales is happy to help you achieve your ideal lifestyle in the healthiest way possible.

How can an OB/GYN help me with family planning?

During a gynecological exam or well-woman visit, Dr. Morales asks questions about your sexual activity and desire to get pregnant. Depending on your answers, she offers the appropriate information to help you plan your family.

Common family planning services include:

  • Contraception counseling (birth control)
  • Preconception counseling before you get pregnant
  • Fertility testing and counseling

How can I prevent pregnancy?

Birth control plays a major role in family planning. If you want to avoid pregnancy, Dr. Morales discusses your best options for contraception.

Depending on your unique lifestyle, this may include:

  • The birth control pill, patch, or ring
  • Intrauterine device (IUD)
  • Sterilization (tubal ligation, also known as “getting your tubes tied”)
