Family Planning Services

About Us

The Division of Family Planning is based at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Our clinicians are committed to providing high-quality, personalized care for women. We believe that every woman should have access to a wide range of family planning options, and deserves an individualized consultation to help her make this decision.

In addition to family planning, we recognize the importance of reproductive and sexual health at all stages of a woman's life. Our faculty has expertise in treating such conditions as vaginitis, vulvar pain, and abnormal uterine bleeding. Our patients' ages range from adolescence to menopause, and we are happy to treat women with other medical conditions that affect their gynecological health.

To schedule an appointment, please call 443-997-0400.
