As Michigan’s leader in women’s health services, Northline Women’s Health Center offers a full range of family planning services at our Southgate, Brownstown and Downriver locations.

For good health during your reproductive years, it’s important to plan for when or if you want to become pregnant. Northline Women’s Health Center can help with family planning methods including:

  • Hormonal contraception, such as birth control pills, shots, patches, vaginal rings, and implants (Nexplanon)
  • IUDs (Mirena or Paragard)
  • Barrier methods, such as condoms, diaphragms and sponges
  • Permanent sterilization surgery through laparoscopic tubal ligation
  • Natural family planning

Abstinence is the only 100% effective way to prevent pregnancy and protect against sexually transmitted infections. An IUD can be up to 99% effective and hormonal contraception can be up to 91% effective in preventing pregnancy.

A barrier method offers protection that does not interact with your body's reproductive system. It can be from 85% to 98% effective in preventing pregnancy depending on proper use. A barrier method also needs to be used each time you have sex.

Permanent surgical sterilization can be up to 99% effective in preventing pregnancy. We also teach natural family planning that tracks your menstrual cycle, cervical mucus, and body temperature to determine on which days you should avoid sex.

Make an appointment at our Brownstown or Southgate, Michigan office to talk with us about family planning that's right for you from Northline Women's Health Center.
