Family Planning

Johns Hopkins Medicine's family planning services are based at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Family planning specialists are board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and are trained through family planning fellowships.

As experts in abortion and modern contraceptive methods, our physicians are able to provide consultations for medically complex patients and their providers. We are committed to providing high-quality, comprehensive, personalized care for women. We believe every woman should have access to a wide range of birth control options and an individualized consultation to help her choose the best option for her.

Our Services

We offer a full range of family planning services, including:

  • Abortion (medical and surgical)
  • Analgesic and anesthesia options for all procedures (i.e. oral or IV sedation)
  • Contraception for women with complex medical problems
  • Contraceptive implants, including difficult insertions and removals
  • Emergency contraception
  • Hormonal and non-hormonal contraceptive methods
  • Intra-uterine devices (IUDs), including difficult insertions and removals

Research

As part of an academic medical center, and given our commitment to improve access to effective contraception, our specialists have ongoing involvement in the latest family planning research and technology.

Featured Research Study: Non-Hormonal Birth Control Method

If you are a healthy woman, 18 years old or older, and have regular menstrual cycles, you may be eligible for a research study for an investigational non-hormonal birth control method. This study will evaluate the contraceptive efficacy, safety, and tolerability of a copper intrauterine device, and will include:

  • Multiple, frequent study visits over an 38 month period
  • Visits will occur at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center
  • Compensation for participation and travel.
