All sterilization techniques should be considered permanent. Therefore, patients should only consider sterilization as a birth control option when they are certain that they do not wish to have any future children. If you have any doubt that you might want children in the future, you should not consider sterilization!
Please note that sterilizations do not offer protection against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Proper protection against STDs must be used after sterilization.
Family Planning Center has specialized in in-office sterilizations for over 20 years!
Family Planning Center requests that all patients attend a brief counseling session with Dr. Whitney prior to any sterilization procedure.
