The Importance of Planning for a Family

Empowerment: Planning empowers individuals and couples to plan their families according to their life goals, financial stability, and overall well-being.

Healthcare Access: We help our patients make informed decisions that suit their unique needs by providing access to various planning methods.

Options For Families to Decide

Contraceptive Counseling: Our healthcare providers offer expert guidance on various contraceptive methods available, including birth control pills, patches, injections, intrauterine devices (IUDs), and more.

Long-Acting Reversible Contraceptives (LARCs): LARCs, such as IUDs and contraceptive implants, are highly effective and provide long-term contraceptive protection. It is a part of the modern methods of contraception.

Natural Planning: We also provide information on natural planning methods that involve tracking fertility cycles to avoid or achieve pregnancy.

Family Planning Services Using Modern Methods

It involves making informed decisions about when and how many to have children. Modern planning programs offer a range of safe and effective methods of family planning to help individuals and couples achieve their desired family size. These methods include:

  1. Contraceptive Pills: Oral contraceptive pills contain hormones that prevent pregnancy by inhibiting ovulation and thickening cervical mucus.
  2. Intrauterine Devices (IUDs): IUDs are small, T-shaped devices inserted into the uterus to provide long-term contraception through hormones or copper.
  3. Contraceptive Implants: Small, flexible rods inserted under the skin in the arm that release hormones to prevent pregnancy for several years.
  4. Contraceptive Patches: Patches containing hormones that are applied to the skin, releasing them gradually to prevent pregnancy.
  5. Condoms: Male and female condoms provide a barrier method of contraception to prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in addition to preventing pregnancy.
  6. Injectable Contraceptives: Hormonal injections are given every few months to prevent ovulation and pregnancy.
  7. Emergency Contraception: The “morning-after pill” is used to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure.
  8. Permanent Methods include tubal ligation (female sterilization) and vasectomy (male sterilization) for individuals or couples who have completed their desired family size.

Modern family planning services take into account individual preferences, medical history, and lifestyle to provide personalized contraceptive options. They empower individuals and couples to take control of their reproductive health, enabling them to plan and space pregnancies effectively. Regular consultations with healthcare providers ensure that the chosen method is suitable and being used correctly.
