The RUSH Approach to Family Planning
Throughout your life, you’ll make different reproductive choices to support your needs and lifestyle. Our experienced family planning providers offer safe, confidential and comprehensive family planning services, including birth control, pregnancy termination and miscarriage management.
RUSH Excellence in Family Planning
- Specially trained to care for you: Our family planning team includes obstetrician-gynecologists who completed additional medical training to provide comprehensive family planning care. Their expertise includes treating complex birth control needs, sometimes complicated by chronic health issues such as diabetes or epilepsy. We are also committed to affirming care — supporting all individuals' reproductive goals confidentially and without judgment.
- Birth control right for you: Our providers offer contraceptive counseling to help you identify the best birth control options for your lifestyle and reproductive goals. Understanding your medical history is critical as certain conditions and medications can affect birth control choices. After you start birth control, your specialist will monitor your physical and emotional health to make sure your method is best for you.
- Expert care during and after pregnancy loss: If you think you may be experiencing a miscarriage, our team can diagnose and treat you. We offer both medication and surgery options to manage your miscarriage as comfortably as possible. After losing a pregnancy, you may need additional support, guidance and medical expertise. The family planning team can connect you with other RUSH specialists to address health issues related to pregnancy loss.
- Access to hospital-based abortion care: RUSH has partnered with local hospitals and the Chicago Abortion Fund to provide the Complex Abortion Referral Line for Access (CARLA) — a patient referral center that helps patients seeking complex abortion care at hospitals in Illinois.
