Family Planning Q & A

What is family planning?

Family planning refers to personalized medical care and support to help you plan when to have children. Family planning usually involves the use of methods like abstinence, natural planning, or birth control to help prevent pregnancy.

What are the different types of birth control?

Aspen Medical Group, Inc. offers several birth control methods and family planning options for men and women. The options available to women include:

  • The daily pill — typically involves estrogen and progestin hormones
  • The patch — hormone patch you place on your skin
  • IUDs (intrauterine devices) — small T-shaped device implanted into your uterus
  • Vaginal hormone-secreting ring you place in your vagina
  • Nexplanon® — small, flexible hormone-secreting birth control implant in your arm
  • Depo-provera® — a contraceptive hormone injection given every three months 

For women, your Aspen provider can also help you determine the days you’re most fertile. This more natural family planning option involves observing changes in basal body temperature, cervical mucus, ovulation calendar, and more. 

Aspen Medical Group, Inc. can also offer sterilization (laparoscopic tubal salpingectomy) for women, where your provider removes one or both Fallopian tubes.

One of the best birth control options for men is a vasectomy — a procedure to cut and seal the tubes of the penis that carry the sperm.

What are the advantages of birth control?

Depending on the type — there are many methods of birth control that don’t just prevent pregnancy — they can also offer advantages, such as:

  • Improving skin texture and clearing up acne
  • Reducing menstrual symptoms in women like fatigue and pain
  • Protecting against sexually transmitted diseases with methods like condoms 

In some instances, birth control can be used to treat certain health conditions in women, such as:

  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • Anemia
  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease

The medical experts of Aspen Medical Group, Inc. are highly knowledgeable in men’s and women’s health, family planning, and contraception. 

During your consultation, your Aspen provider can help you decide which birth control option or family planning method is right for you. Rest assured, you’re given plenty of information on your available options.
