Contraception and Family Planning

Contraception and family planning are both important aspects of a woman’s wellbeing, and should be part of the wellness plan she makes with her healthcare provider. At High Tide Internal Medicine, we provide comprehensive healthcare services for all ages and needs, including women’s wellness. Let our physicians and the rest of our respectful and supportive staff provide you with family planning services.

Family planning is a process that can be confusing or leave you with a lot of questions. Along with your partner and your family, your healthcare provider is a significant part of your support system when it comes to all aspects of family planning. Our compassionate and understanding physicians will consult with you about your plans for starting a family or waiting to start a family, and go over any considerations regarding fertility, contraception, conceiving, pregnancy, and post-pregnancy.

Once a woman becomes sexually active, she should see a doctor for a gynecological exam and for counseling on sexual health and pregnancy prevention. Our physicians can provide confidential healthcare services for all aspects of a woman’s health, as well as resources and information that help her stay healthy and prevent pregnancy until the time comes that she chooses to start a family.

There are many options to choose from when it comes to contraception, and everyone’s needs are different. During your well woman visit or regular physical exam, we can discuss with you the advantages and disadvantages of the various contraception options, and help you to choose the one that is best for you based on your health history and lifestyle. Once you choose the contraception that is best for your needs, our physicians can write your prescription or insert your birth control, based on the option you have chosen.

The physicians at High Tide Internal Medicine have the experience and resources to provide you with education, treatment, and management of all of your family planning needs. Call us at (843) 580-7206 to make an appointment for women’s wellness services including family planning, contraception, and annual exams.
