Fertility Care

Compassionate care and support for family planning

Fertility & Family Planning

The decision to have children is deeply personal. At Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Plymouth, our fertility experts guide and support you.

If you want to get pregnant, we can help. If having children isn't part of your plan, we offer options for birth control.

Preconception Visits

Our team provides options to help you get pregnant by assessing your and your partner's health.

We diagnose and treat conditions that can affect pregnancy and discuss how to improve your chances of getting pregnant.

Our experts:

  • Assess your stage of life and health history
  • Discuss lifestyle, nutrition, vitamins and intercourse timing
  • Discuss how the menstrual cycle, ovulation and fertilization work
  • Evaluate your cycles to identify your fertile window of time
  • Talk with you about ways increase your pregnancy chances

Birth Control Options

We offer a variety of birth control options. Your doctor will speak with you to determine the best method for your lifestyle.

Charts and a pelvic model are used to discuss your menstrual cycle. Your doctor will then describe the impact different types of birth control might have on your body.

Birth control options include:

  • Arm implant (Nexplanon)
  • Birth control patch
  • Contraceptive injection
  • Diaphragms
  • Fertility awareness/natural family planning
  • Intrauterine devices (IUDs)
  • Oral contraceptive pills (including progestin-only birth control pills)
  • Tubal ligation
  • Vaginal ring
