Family Planning

Family Planning is a program available for women and men of all ages, including teens. We offer reproductive and other health services at low or often no cost to you. What do you need? Birth control? A test to see if you have a sexually transmitted infection? Your annual exam? Do you think you might be pregnant? We can help with all of those needs as well as your questions. Our family planning nurses and nurse practitioners can answer your questions and provide services such as annual exams, birth control supplies, pregnancy and STD tests.
