Contraception and Family Planning in New Jersey

Contraception and Family Planning Essex County

At Women’s First Health Center, we’re committed to providing extensive care in all aspects of contraception and family planning. We work closely with fertility institutions like IRMS (Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science) and RMA (Reproductive Medicine Associates) so we can provide our patients with up-to-date news, information and practices. This voluntary compliance and collaboration allows Women’s First Health Center to issue New Jersey residents a large range of high quality contraception and family planning opportunities.

If your home pregnancy test came up positive, schedule an appointment for a follow physical exam and to begin prenatal care. At Women’s First Health Center, we are by your side each step of the way during your pregnancy. During each prenatal checkup, don’t be afraid to ask questions and communicate any concerns with our physicians. We want you to enjoy every second of this nine month journey, and our priority is ensuring that you have a healthy, stress-free pregnancy.

Contraception Options Near You

Pregnancy isn’t for everyone. If you want to avoid pregnancy – or aren’t quite ready to become pregnant – Women’s First Health Center in West Orange, New Jersey provides a wide variety of contraception options. We administer education and advice on various contraceptive methods in order to find the preventative measure that is right for you and your current lifestyle. The following list describes the birth control options available with WFHC.

 

  • Birth Control Pills – A daily hormone medication that prevents pregnancy.
  • Birth Control Implants (Nexplanon) – A small rod implanted underneath the skin in the upper arm that releases pregnancy preventative hormones.
  • Birth Control Shots – The hormone progestin is injected to prevent ovulation and pregnancy.
  • Birth Control Patches – A thin, bandage-like patch that is comparable to the pill but requires new application once per week.
  • Vaginal Rings – A flexible piece of plastic is inserted into the vagina and provides birth control with controlled releases of hormones to prevent pregnancy.
  • Male & Female Condoms – The most common form of birth control is the use of a male or female condom. Both birth control methods prevent sperm from entering the cervix by application onto the penis or into the vagina.
  • IUDs (Mirena, Paragard, Kyleena, Skyla, Liletta) – a hormone or copper coated T-shaped instrument that is inserted into the uterus to provide effective birth control.
