Family planning services are pivotal in addressing the global challenges of population growth and reproductive health. Access to comprehensive family planning services empowers individuals and couples to make informed decisions. 

At Borneo Hospital in Thane, we understand the importance of family planning services. With a dedicated team of healthcare professionals and modern facilities, we offer a range of family planning options in a compassionate and confidential environment.

What is Family planning?

Family planning is the ability of individuals and couples to anticipate and attain their desired number of children and the spacing and timing of their births. It is achieved through contraceptive methods and the treatment of involuntary infertility.

Family planning services cover a wide range of reproductive health services, including:

  • Contraceptive counseling and services: This includes providing information about different types of contraception, helping people choose the suitable method, and providing prescriptions or supplies
  • Pregnancy testing and counseling:This includes providing tests to determine if someone is pregnant and counseling about options for pregnancy termination or continuation
  • Infertility services: This includes providing diagnosis and treatment for people who are having difficulty getting pregnant
  • STI testing and treatment: This includes providing testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, and HIV
  • Preconception health services: This includes providing counseling and services to help people prepare for pregnancy, such as getting immunizations and taking vitamins

Goals Of Family Planning

The goals of family planning are to:

  • Help people have the number and spacing of children they want: This can improve parents' and children's health and well-being.
