Birth control, or contraception, has been used for thousands of years. In order to prevent pregnancy, or plan the timing of pregnancy, plus prevent sexually transmitted diseases (STD), utilizing a method of birth control is safe and effective. Planned Parenthood is available to the residents of St. Pete, Sarasota, and the surrounding regions to offer advice, information, and methods for birth control.
Discuss your birth control options with a Planned Parenthood clinic staff member in St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Tampa, Fort Myers, Lakeland, Manatee, or Winter Haven.
