Family Planning Q & A
What is family planning?
Family planning is an important set of services available to you at North Atlanta Ob/Gyn. If you’re considering trying to get pregnant, family planning can help you make sure you’re physically and mentally prepared. Family planning can also help you avoid getting pregnant until you’re ready.
Your provider at North Atlanta Ob/Gyn answers all of your questions about contraception, fertility, and other important considerations surrounding your choice to get pregnant. If you struggle to achieve pregnancy without medical assistance, your North Atlanta Ob/Gyn can outline your options and give you the best possible chance of getting pregnant.
Which complications can arise during family planning?
One of the major complications that can arise during family planning is infertility. Generally, an infertility diagnosis requires that you try to conceive for a year or longer without success, or six months or longer if you’re 35 or older. It might be on the part of you or your partner, or for unknown reasons.
The process of conception is complex, and many issues could cause infertility. Common causes of infertility in women include:
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
- Low egg count
- Hormone imbalances from the hypothalamus or pituitary gland
- Premature menopause
- Uterine structural issues (e.g., fibroids, endometriosis adhesions)
The North Atlanta Ob/Gyn team can diagnose infertility issues like these. They can help you select one or more treatments for infertility to improve your chances of conception.
What might family planning involve?
North Atlanta Ob/Gyn offers several services that play important roles in planning a pregnancy. Depending on your needs and the needs of your partner, your provider might recommend:
Choosing an effective contraceptive and learning to use it properly allows you to avoid pregnancy before you’re ready. Many contraceptive options are temporary, and you can stop using them at any time when you’re ready to conceive.
Genetic tests show chromosomal abnormalities in yourself and your partner that you might pass on to your future children. Some study specific genes, while others analyze whole strands of DNA within a chromosome.
With fertility treatments like medications and surgeries, you can improve your chances of getting pregnant even if you’ve had trouble in the past.
Intrauterine insemination is another treatment for infertility. Your provider places sperm directly in your uterus to help the fertilization process.
The North Atlanta Ob/Gyn team can also refer you to trusted specialists in the area for additional fertility treatments, like in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Family planning can give you and your partner more confidence about becoming pregnant. To explore available family planning services, call North Atlanta Ob/Gyn, or book an appointment online today.
