Family Planning Q & A

What family planning services are available?

To protect your reproductive health and help you manage your plans for your family, the team offers a variety of family planning services. You can schedule a consultation at Willow Glen Primary care for services like:

  • Pelvic exams
  • Birth control
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) screenings
  • Pap smears
  • Referrals for pregnancy  termination or other specialized care
  • Co-management of pregnancy with obstetricians

If you’re having difficulties conceiving, Dr. Lindsay can provide guidance and referrals for infertility care. She also provides pre-conception counseling to promote a healthy pregnancy.

Which birth control is right for me?

To provide you with the most options for birth control based on your existing health, Willow Glen Primary Care offers:

  • Condoms
  • Injections
  • Birth control pills
  • Intrauterine device (IUD)
  • Morning after pill 
  • Nuva Ring, etc.

Birth control isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution and not all birth control methods are right for you. Determining which method is right for you depends on your current health, your family history, and your desire for children in the future.

Dr. Lindsay performs a comprehensive evaluation of your health during your visit and creates a treatment plan to help you avoid unwanted pregnancy.

What can I expect during a pregnancy test?

To confirm a pregnancy, your provider reviews any symptoms you might have and offers in-office urine tests. If the results of the test are positive for a pregnancy, your doctor can recommend resources to ensure a healthy pregnancy. These resources might include:

  • Obstetrics care
  • STD screenings
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Pregnancy and pregnancy option education

Dr, Lindsay can perform an initial pelvic exam to assess the overall health of your reproductive system.

If you have existing health conditions, like diabetes, your doctor creates a treatment plan to keep your condition well-managed throughout your pregnancy.

What are the benefits of family planning services?

The goal of family planning is to help you establish the family you desire when you are ready for it. By discussing your family planning needs, your provider works with you to make decisions about your health care, especially if you’re still interested in having children.

Ensuring you’re healthy before you become pregnant can reduce your risk for miscarriages and other complications. 

Even if you need care from a specialist, Dr. Lindsay can coordinate care with your other doctors to provide you with consistent care based on your specific needs.

If you need to schedule a pregnancy test or want to learn more about family planning services, schedule a consultation with Willow Glen Primary Care today using the online booking system or by calling the office.
