Reproductive health services

Most doctors are more than happy to sit down with you and discuss your reproductive health including family planning, birth control options, medical care, pregnancy options and emotional support.

    Birth control methods

    There are a variety of birth control options available. We recommend you take some time reading about the different methods. As you do, think about which methods will be the best fit for you..

    Pregnancy tests

    If you have a positive test, it is important to seek medical care even in the earliest stages of your pregnancy. It’s especially important to start taking a prenatal vitamin with folic acid as soon as you can.

    See our list of clinics above to find services, including where to get a free or low-cost pregnancy test, or get follow-up care.

    Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

    If you've been diagnosed with an STI you can get treatment for your partner, too.

    Many sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can be easily diagnosed and treated. Anyone who is sexually active should get tested regularly for STI, also commonly referred to as a sexually transmitted disease or STD. Sometimes a person with a sexually transmitted infection has no symptoms, which means they can pass it on to their partners without knowing.

    Relationship safety

    Everyone deserves to feel safe. If you or someone you know experiences domestic abuse, sexual assault, verbal and emotional abuse, coercion or stalking, we encourage you to seek help.
