Family Planning

Medical experts recommend that women not have sex for at least six weeks after giving birth, and that they not become pregnant within six months. Since getting pregnant again too soon can be very dangerous, it is important to decide early which form of family planning you will use.

  • Talk to your doctor and partner about the best method of family planning for you. Is the method easy to use? Is it safe? Does it work?
  • Methods that don’t work include: Withdrawal, douching, makeshift condoms, feminine hygiene products and breastfeeding.
