FEMM (Fertility Education and Medical Management) helps women from puberty through menopause to listen and understand what their bodies are trying to tell them. Do you have acne? Do you have painful periods? Is your hormonal birth control making you feel weird and not yourself? Are you struggling with depression and/or anxiety? THERE’S A REASON. Let’s figure out what that is.
We are introducing four new ways YOU can get involved in the life affirming services of Informed Choices Medical Clinics. When you become a paying patient of Informed Choices Medical Clinic you are advancing a pro-life/life-affirming
culture… in short, you are saving families and babies from the pain of abortion.
FEMM Fertility Education and Medical Management
ICMC is now equipped with trained educators in FEMM. FEMM is a fertility awareness method that educates adolescents and women regarding their reproductive cycle, allowing them to be in tune with their changing hormones and recognize irregularities as they arise. Our nurse practitioner is a certified FEMM provider, allowing her to begin diagnosing and guiding treatment for issues including, but not limited to premenstrual syndrome, irregular cycles, and infertility. FEMM promotes identification and management of underlying causes of health issues, with the desire for every women to experience optimal health. FEMM also teaches women to recognize periods of fertility and infertility every cycle, allowing them to take control of achieving and avoiding pregnancy without the use of
hormonal contraception. Did you know that couples who use natural family planning as a team have a 2% divorce rate?! If you would like to take control of your reproductive health, or if you have questions
regarding FEMM, call us today to set up a no-cost introductory session!
Early Prenatal Care
ICMC can be your first stop if you think you might be pregnant! We specialize in early prenatal care (6-12 weeks), providing dating and viability confirmation through limited obstetric ultrasounds and referral to local OB/GYNs. When you visit ICMC for early prenatal care, you are helping our nurses with training and you are supporting life affirming care for at-risk mothers. If you, or someone you know, think you might be pregnant, call today and make a confidential appointment. We want to be there for you!
Testing for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
Did you know that STIs are not always transmitted through risky sexual behavior? In fact, the CDC States that the rate of STIs in our country are at epidemic levels and recommends that everyone, regardless of specific risk factors, be tested for HIV at some time in their life. If you have or are
serving in the military, have participated in contact sports, if you work in the medical field, and have had more than one sexual partner you should be tested for the most common STIs. If you were born between 1945-1965 you should be tested Hepatitis C. Most insurance companies will pay for a full panel of testing once a year. Call today and make a confidential appointment with our understanding, faith focused staff. You matter to us!
All of these services not only help build and strengthen a culture of life, but they financially support our outreach to the abortion vulnerable and help provide resources to the under served in our communities across Iowa.
These services are also often covered by health insurance. However, we are committed to providing optimal healthcare to every at-risk individual in Iowa.
