New Recommended Screening Schedule & Birth Control Without An Exam
PPSFL no longer requires pelvic exams to begin or continue birth control. We strongly advise that you continue to visit the health center for regular Women’s Health Checks. However, the timing of these visits has recently changed based on new medical recommendations.
Talk with your clinician to determine when to make your next appointment. Your visit schedule will be based on your age, health history, and other factors that could affect your health. To learn more about the most current medical science behind these changes, visit acog.org.
