Family Planning Q & A

What is family planning?

Family planning is the method of controlling the size of your family. This includes the number of children you want to have, if any, and the number of years you choose to have between them.

If you want to avoid pregnancy, Newport Center Women’s Health provides education and tools to prevent pregnancy. They can also help you protect your fertility if you might want children later in life.

When you’re ready to have a baby, your OB/GYN can discuss preconception visits, fertility testing, and lifestyle habits to support your decision. They also provide comprehensive obstetrical services once you have a positive pregnancy test.

If you’re done having children, Dr. Kroll and her team can discuss birth control or permanent sterilization with you. Their role is to help you make the most informed decisions and provide the medical resources necessary to support those decisions.
