February 14th through the 21st is Condom Week in the United States. The annual initiative emphasizes the importance of safe sex. It begins on Valentine’s Day and lasts for a week. It’s a good time to talk about sexual health, birth control, and STD prevention with your OBGYN so you can have your questions answered by a medical professional. Dr. Ahmadinia makes his patients feel comfortable in his presence by tending to their birth control and family planning needs in a timely manner.
Finding the Right OBGYN to Assist You is Self-Care at Its Finest
Having a medical professional to speak to about reproductive health and protection is key. It makes the subject less taboo and allows you to share what you’ve learned with other people. That way, you’re able to benefit others with your knowledge and also convince them that seeing an OBGYN regularly is the ultimate act of self-care.
For many women, condoms are an easier option because they’re readily available, affordable, and effective in preventing disease and pregnancy. Other forms of contraception may require a prescription or a surgical procedure to implant the device. Condoms are sold at supermarkets, big-box retailers, drugstores, and online through virtual retailers, making them plentiful and easy to keep on hand for sexual encounters.
Make February Be a Month of Sexual Awareness and Empowerment
Use February as a reason to discuss birth control options with Dr. Ahmadinia. Condoms are easily available, effective, and affordable. If other birth control methods interest you, don’t be afraid to ask about them the next time you visit OBGYN High Desert. Knowledge is power, and an informed patient knows what is best for her body.
