Women’s Specialists of Plano offers family planning services to women and couples in the Plano, Frisco and Dallas, Texas area who desire to plan for a family and attain their desired number of children.  Our skilled gynecologists are experts in the area of birth control, infertility, childbirth, and assisting in the delay or achievement of a pregnancy.

Family planning is a term that should not be confused with birth control.  It includes a variety of physical and mental services, and also includes the management and comprehensive medical activities that help to either prevent a pregnancy, or enable a woman to become pregnant.

The overall health of a woman is the most important issue that surrounds the topic of family planning.  Women’s Specialists of Plano recommend a woman be at least 18 years of age before trying to become pregnant. In addition, for women who are on birth control and wish to become pregnant, our physicians will create an appropriate conception plan which will allow a woman to come off of her contraception safely and effectively before trying to become pregnant.  If a woman has had a miscarriage or abortion, it is recommended that a period of 3-6 months pass before trying to achieve pregnancy again.  Women who are nearing or in menopause, or are over the age of 35, will require additional monitoring by our doctors.  Because childbirth becomes riskier as a woman approaches menopause, these risks will be highlighted during family planning visits so that additional measures can be put into place in order to achieve a healthy pregnancy.

Birth control is used for women who wish to prevent pregnancy.  Women’s Specialists of Plano offer a variety of choices of contraception that are uniquely prescribed per the patient’s desires, wants, and health, as well as their short and long-term goals.  Our website offers information about these birth control methods.
