Family Planning 

We provide education, counseling, medical services, referrals, and follow-up visits that will help men and women plan their family size. We offer a variety of methods of birth control. All methods of birth control are available to any person of childbearing age, including teens. Birth control methods include natural family planning, male and female condoms, diaphragm, birth control pills, intra-uterine devices (IUD) and Depo Provera injection. Confidential pregnancy testing and emergency contraception are available at both clinic locations.

Pregnancy Testing 

Appointments to assess for possible pregnancy is available for women who are at least 2 weeks past their expected date of menses. If your test is positive, you will receive counseling about healthy choices for you and your baby. If your test is negative you will receive counseling on family planning options. Women between the ages of 15-26 are offered testing for Sexually Transmitted Infections (Chlamydia and Gonorrhea) as recommended by Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Vesectomy 

Vasectomy is a dependable method of birth control for men who think they will never want any more children.
