It’s important to get to know your body—where things are, how it works, and how to take care of yourself—so you can make good decisions about your sexual health.

When you're at a Planned Parenthood health center, remember: there's no such thing as a stupid question. Our healthcare providers are here to talk with you about your body. It becomes especially important to ask questions when you have pain or discomfort that lasts for a long time, or if anything just feels wrong.

You can come to Planned Parenthood for birth control, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, pregnancy testing, and more. We have lots of great services that are private and affordable—and we don’t judge. Find your nearest Planned Parenthood and schedule your next appointment online—or call us at 1-800-230-PLAN.

Parental and Minor Consent Forms and Facts

Consent for Medical Treatment of Minor Reciving Family Planning Services
Consentimiento Para Tratamiento Médico De Un/a Menor Recibiendo Servicios De Planificación Familiar

Please handwrite in black ink. If you have any questions, we're here to help.

Some minors (under the age of 18) will be required to obtain consent from a parent or guardian before receiving certain medical services (such as birth control, a cervical cancer screening, or a well-woman exam) at our health centers.

We CAN provide certain medical care to a minor without parental consent at any of our health centers if:

  • You are requesting condoms.
  • You would like information about birth control.
  • You are requesting a pregnancy test.
  • You are requesting testing or treatment for certain sexually transmitted diseases.
  • You are age 16 or 17 and live apart from your parents and manage your own finances. You will be asked to sign a form stating that these are your living arrangements.
  • You are emancipated or married.
  •  You are unmarried and the parent of a minor — you must have custody of the minor and be able to provide consent for their medical care.
  • Your parent(s)/guardian cannot be contacted. This means that you do not know how to contact your parents/guardian (you don't know where they live or you are unable to contact them). This does not apply if you just don't want your parents/guardian to be contacted. If your parent or guardian cannot be contacted another adult may be able to sign a consent form for you.

Please call 1-800-230-PLAN for information on Title X funding availability at Planned Parenthood health centers.
