Reproductive and Sexual Health


Your primary care provider and most doctors are happy to sit down with you to discuss your reproductive and sexual health, including family planning, birth control options, pregnancy options as well as treatment, testing and prevention options for sexually transmitted infections.

Reproductive Health Resources

STI Resources

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections that are spread from one person to another, usually during vaginal, anal and oral sex. They’re common and many people who have an STI may not know or be aware of symptoms. Clackamas County Public Health works closely with community partners to ensure everyone has access to judgement-free testing and treatment resources.

Anyone who is sexually active should get tested regularly for STIs, which can easily be diagnosed and treated. If you or your partner have an STI, you both need to be treated at the same time to avoid reinfection.

STI Rates in Clackamas County

Each year, thousands of Clackamas County residents contract bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STIs), such as syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia. In just over five years, rates of syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia have peaked. The rise of STIs in Clackamas County mirrors national, statewide and regional trends. In 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identified approximately 2 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis in the United States – the highest number ever recorded.

While rates of STIs are increasing across all populations in Clackamas County, certain groups, such as young people ages 15 to 24, women, people of color, and LGBTQ+ individuals – particularly gay, bisexual, and men who have sex with men– are disproportionately impacted by STIs.

Clackamas County Public Health and our partners have a role to play to stop the transmission of STIs and has created a report to outlines our initial steps. As the local public health agency, Clackamas County provides STI surveillance and monitoring, health education, and partner notification services.

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.

Sexual Reproductive Health Coalition
