At WomanCare, we know that choosing the right time to start a family is a big decision. If you’re not ready for children right now, we offer complete family planning to aid you in this process, with birth control options including oral contraceptives, implants, intrauterine devices, natural contraceptive options and more. We encourage you to talk openly and feel comfortable discussing your family planning goals and questions with your WomanCare provider.
If you’re ready to have children, but are having difficulty conceiving, we offer infertility evaluations for you and your partner. During your initial infertility evaluation appointment, your WomanCare physician will review with you any previous surgeries you’ve had, chronic diseases, lifestyle and stress, illnesses, medications used, alcohol or tobacco use, sexual practices and more. In addition, you and your partner may undergo a series of infertility tests, which can include physical examinations, blood tests, urine tests, biopsy, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) evaluations and more. Give us a call or talk with your WomanCare provider about infertility evaluations.
Preconception care at WomanCare involves learning and practicing healthy lifestyle changes to get your body ready to conceive and carry a child. There’s a lot you can do to prepare for pregnancy such as taking a prenatal supplement, getting plenty of rest, achieving a balanced, healthy diet, exercising, eliminating potentially harmful habits and more. There are even steps your partner can take to help your chances of getting pregnant. Schedule your preconception care appointment at WomanCare today to learn more.
