We’ll do our best to answer your questions and provide the resources for you to be healthy. Here’s what you should know before you submit a question to the Planned Parenthood expert team:

  1. If what’s going on could be an emergency, call 911.

  2. Chances are we’ve already answered your question, so check our tags and archives to get info ASAP.

  3. Submitting questions/comments to us gives us the okay to share it publicly on our page. (We’ll never share your identity or information without your permission.)

  4. Sorry, we can’t guarantee a response. We try our best to read and answer as many questions as possible, but we get a ton of submissions.

  5. Most questions won’t be answered right away. If you want answers quickly, you can use our chat/text program to live-chat with a health educator, ask our brand new chatbot named Roo, or contact your local Planned Parenthood health center.

  6. Please keep it short and sweet. Questions are usually published unaltered, but we may edit for content and length.

  7. Although we try our best to be a helpful resource, there are some things we can’t do here on the internet: diagnose you with an illness; know if you’re pregnant; make or cancel an appointment at any of our health centers; change your prescriptions; or contact your doctor. You can talk with your health care provider about this stuff.

  8. Politically active? Great! So is the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. If you’re interested in protests, rallies, politics, and other advocacy info, check out PP Action.

This forum is for informational purposes only and is not intended to replace medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. If you have a medical problem, please contact the Planned Parenthood health center nearest you.
