"Come Back Any Time": Reasons to Return

No routine return visit is required. Providers should invite a woman or couple to meet with them a few times during the first few cycles if they want more help. Assure every client that she is welcome to come back any time—for example, if she has problems, questions, or wants another method; she has any major change in health status; or thinks she might be pregnant. Also if:

  • She is having difficulty identifying her fertile days.
  • She is having trouble avoiding sex or using another method on the fertile days. For example, her partner does not cooperate.
