All done

Your arms are full, your life is busy, and you have completed your plan for the number of children you want in your life. Congratulations!

It is important to take time in the middle of your very busy life, to talk with your health care provider about the birth control method that is right for you now. You may want to consider permanent methods of birth control for you or your partners or a long-acting contraceptive method. Remember that permanent and long-acting contraceptive methods do not protect you from sexually transmitted infections (STIs). So if you have multiple partners or are not in a monogamous relationship, you should use condoms every time you have sex.

Take a multivitamin every day. Women are busy and may not always make the time to eat as healthy as they should. Taking a multivitamin every day is one quick and inexpensive way you can take care of yourself.

Make sure that you keep exercising and stress management in your daily planner. Stay up to date on your vaccinations and health screenings. Your family needs YOU to stay healthy. Check out the “Healthy at any age” section of this site for good information about wellness for women.
