Family Planning

Family planning empowers women

Choosing when to start or grow your family is a personal decision for every woman. Whether you’re thinking about having a baby now or are focused on other priorities, choose an Austin obgyn who will listen to your needs and help you evaluate your family planning options.

Our all-female team of obgyns goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable discussing all of your intimate needs, whether you’re considering birth control or wanting to be sure your body is baby-ready. Our compassionate, friendly obgyns are family planning experts, and are happy to share their expertise with you to help you weigh all of your available options and make informed decisions.

Family planning for your lifestyle

As women and as physicians, we believe strongly in empowering women to choose when and how to grow their families. We’re here to give you the tools and education you need to make the best choices for yourself and the people you care about most.

Whether your idea of “family planning” is delaying pregnancy or planning for a baby, the first step is a consultation and physical exam to give your Austin obgyn a baseline measure of your lifestyle, needs and gynecologic health.

If you’d like to prevent or delay pregnancy, we can help you explore the many available birth control options and choose one that’s a perfect fit for your body and your lifestyle.

  • Birth control pills
  • Vaginal rings
  • Long term reversible contraception (LARC), IUDs and implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Injectable contraceptives
  • Emergency contraception
  • Tubal ligation for permanent sterilization

Research has proven that family planning services not only give women more control over the size of their families, but also improve outcomes for mothers and their babies. If you’re ready to add a new baby to your family, our preconception services will help you get off to the healthiest possible start.

Our family planning services include:

  • Gynecologic exams
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing and treatment
  • Preconception counseling
  • Vaccination recommendations
  • Nutrition planning and weight loss
  • Baseline fertility testing
  • Genetic counseling and testing
  • Pregnancy testing

By enlisting the support of your Austin obgyn early in your family-building process, you’ll have an ally and advisor who can answer any questions you may have along the way, as well as an obstetric expert to ensure that you and your baby receive optimal care throughout your pregnancy and birth.
