Reproductive Life Plan

The Center for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) suggests that men and women think about a reproductive life plan. This means deciding the ideal time and conditions for having children and learning how to achieve these goals.  It may include using an effective contraceptive. Based on your health, your doctor will suggest a plan of treatment or follow up care as needed to follow your reproductive life plan. For additional information:
