Family Planning and Counseling Q & A
What is family planning and counseling?
Family planning and counseling is a personalized health service offered at WomanKind OB/GYN, PA. Dr. Daley is a women’s health expert who personally understands the special health needs of women.
She offers family planning and counseling to help you take control of your reproductive health. This not only includes preventive counseling for pregnancy, but also prevention and protection against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
What happens during a family planning and counseling session?
The details of your family planning and counseling session depends on your specific health needs and current and future pregnancy plans. Dr. Daley takes a personalized approach to care and takes the time needed to understand your health concerns so she can provide the best care possible.
During your family planning and counseling session, Dr. Daley asks detailed questions about your current and future pregnancy plans, as well as your sexual, gynecological, and medical history. She may also perform a physical and pelvic exam to better understand your general health and wellness needs.
After the examination, Dr. Daley talks to you about your family planning options and helps you decide what makes the best choice for you and your health. Various birth control options may include:
- Long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs), including IUDs and NEXPLANON®, which can be used for 3-10 years
- Short-term hormonal birth control, including Depo-Provera, which can be used for 3 months

What can I expect during an infertility consultation?
In addition to helping you plan your family and manage your reproductive health, Dr. Daley at WomanKind OB/GYN, PA, also specializes in infertility. You can expect compassionate and personalized care when you come in to see Dr. Daley for an infertility consultation.
To better understand the underlying cause of your difficulties conceiving, she may request various diagnostic tests, such as a check of hormone levels and an ultrasound. She may review your partner’s medical and family history and request a semen evaluation.
Based on the results of your examination, Dr. Daley works closely with you and your partner to design an infertility plan that increases your chances of conception.
