Fort Worth OB/GYN: More parents seeking birth control for young patients

TCMS President Dr. Shanna Combs spoke with Andrea Lucia of CBSDFW about the rising rates of birth control requests in light of the recent Supreme Court ruling. Here is an excerpt:

Politics is not something Doctor Shanna Combs brings up with patients.

“It was a little disconcerting at first in September when I started having parents be like, ‘So… Senate Bill 8,'” she said chuckling.

Dr. Combs is an OBGYN who specializes in treating children and adolescents. She’s long prescribed birth control to help manage their periods.

“It can make them lighter. It can make them less painful and, you know, basically make life livable if you have really bad periods,” she said.
