Yes! Birth control and women’s health is our specialty and we are happy to provide complete information about all types of birth control. You can choose to just discuss information, or you can start a method right away.
No. We start women on birth control right away. We also evaluate the need for recommended testing and exams and will discuss this with you.
Usually not. Recommendations have recently changed, and if your last few pap smears were normal, your next pap smear will be due 3 years later. We still recommend yearly annual exams, to check blood pressure, health needs and STD screening but pelvic exam may not be needed each year.
We welcome people of all genders at all of our clinics.
