What is a Family Planning center?

A: A family planning center can mean different things depending upon what the center offers. Most often, these centers are like those run by the organization Planned parenthood®.

Will you continue to support the Susan G. Komen Foundaton, knowing it is held hostage by Planned parenthood?

A: Way to misinterpret a story there with only parts of the information. My position is that the work of both those organizations is useful, and that the involvement of the Komen Foundation in Planned parenthood very much makes sense.. Here some information about the relationship between those organizations: ''The Susan G. Komen organization granted money to Planned parenthood Federation of America and affiliates. The money paid for 170,000 clinical breast exams and 6,400 mammogram referrals over the past five years at Planned parenthood. Komen had said its affiliates provide funds for screening, education and treatment programs in dozens of...

IUD form of birth control

A: depends heavily on the IUD and the person putting it there. The pain ranges from "minor discomfort" during the insertion and was fine by the next day to hurt less than a pap smear and had cramping for the next couple of days to hurt a lot; felt like I was having heavy cramps for the next two weeks. ...so...yeah, quite a range. After the initial soreness is over, the patient usually gets used to the IUD. The sex...some people complain about the sex being uncomfortable, others say that they don''t notice it. With the Mirena IUD, a lot of MALES complain about the tip of the IUD poking their tip...

How to get birth control for my girlfriend?

A: Q If I''m under 18 and want to obtain contraception, do I need my parents'' permission and if not, will they find out that I''m using birth control? A Currently, there are no laws in any state, including New York State, that require parental consent or notification if someone under the age of 18 wants to get birth control. We would prefer, if possible, to avoid lengthy doctor''s appointments or clinic visits. Birth control is a serious medication, involving large doses of hormones to interfere with the body''s natural cycles. I think planned parenthood is a good idea, but they are going to want you to come in and talk to someone before they prescribe anything for you. Why don''t you take a loot at the Planned parenthood Website and give...

Post-Abortion Pill - Did it Work?

A: Dear Ben, This is a very unusual story.  I have been offering the abortion pill for over a decade and have never had a patient who did not bleed at all - especially at 8 weeks.  The other odd result is a negative urine test.  Normally, the test typically does not turn negative until 2-4 weeks after a medical abortion at 8 weeks.  Even at 6 weeks, it usually takes at least 2 weeks to become negative.   There are a few possible scenarios. 1) the pill worked, but the pregnancy tissue is "stuck" in the cervix, which can cause bloating. 2) the pill hasn"t worked at all and the pregnancy test is a false negative 3) she was never pregnant originally or it was not in the uterus or she was much earlier than 8 weeks (did she get an initial ultrasound? Who told her she...
