Family Planning

Planning for the future is a journey filled with choices and considerations, and family planning is crucial to this path. Dr R Fuentes is ready to help you on your reproductive journey, recognising the significance of personalised family planning that aligns with your unique goals.

What is family planning?

Family planning is a conscious decision and action to determine the number and spacing of children, considering factors like age, health, lifestyle, and personal goals. It involves choosing when to start a family, how many children to have, and when to have them.

We know this decision is personal, so we approach each patient individually.

What is the significance of family planning?

Family planning allows you to align your reproductive choices with your personal and career goals. Dr Fuentes emphasises the importance of considering your aspirations and ensuring family planning supports your life's trajectory.

It also provides an opportunity to optimise your health before and during pregnancy. By planning pregnancies strategically, you can ensure you're in the best possible health for both yourself and your future child.

What are the various options for family planning?

Dr Fuentes provides access to a wide range of contraceptive options and will discuss these options with you to determine the best choice for you:

  • The Pill
  • Patch
  • Injection
  • Intra-uterine device
  • Vaginal ring
  • Condoms

For those who prefer a non-hormonal approach, natural family planning involves tracking menstrual cycles and identifying fertile days. Dr Fuentes provides guidance on this method, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of its effectiveness.

What should I consider when planning a pregnancy?

Dr Fuentes stresses the importance of preconception health. This includes addressing existing health conditions, adopting a healthy lifestyle, and ensuring you're emotionally prepared for the journey ahead.

It also involves not only preventing but also planning for pregnancies. Dr Fuentes discusses the optimal timing for conception, considering factors such as age, health, and personal goals.
