CONTRACEPTION COUNSELLING

 

No matter stage of life you find yourself in, Dr Ati can assist you in the contraceptive needs to suit your lifestyle. While avoiding unintended pregnancy is one of the reasons women seek contraception, contraceptives can also be used for a variety of reasons beyond pregnancy concerns, empowering women of all ages and life stages to live the life they want.


Dr Ati provides contraceptive counselling to inform and educate his female patients on their reproductive health. These appointments are there to clear up misunderstandings about sex, fertility awareness and the menstrual cycle’s role in pregnancy. These appointments are aimed at women new to menstruation, those owning their sexuality, those planning their family and anyone in between.

While contraception is vital for women who are sexually active, virginal patients, especially adolescents can benefit from contraception counselling to understand their body better, be aware about the sexual myths that exist and know that contraceptives do not necessary protect against STDs and STIs.

For sexually active women, contraception may be used to prevent unintended pregnancy. Each woman is unique, and contraception should not be a one-size-fits-all approach. There is a range of options when it comes to contraception, and thus your appointment with Dr Ati will be focused on the pros and cons of each type, and which types may be best suited for your lifestyle. Be it birth control pills, barrier methods, injections, rings, rods, patches and intra-uterine contraceptive devices such as the Implanon, Mirena, Kyleena or the Copper-T, your gynaecologist can help you make the right decision for you.

Contraception is not only used to prevent unintended pregnancy and aid family planning, but also to manage hormones, regulate menstrual cycles, ease menstrual cramps, acne or PMS, and manage various gynaecological conditions such as Endometriosis, Primary Ovarian Insufficiency (POI) and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
