Visit Type

Birth Control

We offer the following birth control methods:

  • pill
  • patch
  • ring
  • shot
  • IUDs
  • implant.

The birth control pill and vaginal ring are available for purchase right in our health centers. We are not in-network with insurance prescription plans for the pill or ring. If you would like to use your insurance for the pill or ring, we can send your prescription to your pharmacy. All prescriptions for the birth control patch are sent to a pharmacy.

You also have the option to have STD/STI testing performed at this visit.

GYN Exam

If your visit is for a GYN exam, also known as a wellness exam or an annual exam, you will have a breast exam and an internal pelvic exam. Depending on your age and medical history, you may need to have a pap test too.

If you are having vaginal symptoms, it is advised you reschedule your appointment to a problem visit.

During this visit, you also have the option to discuss and get started on birth control, switch your birth control method, and get STI testing done before you leave.

Telehealth Visit

Planned Parenthood Keystone is unable to provide telehealth services to patients who are outside of Pennsylvania.

Abortion

In Pennsylvania, the Abortion Control Act of 1989 requires that anyone having an abortion in PA has an information session with a doctor prior to their abortion. This session must take place at least 24 hours before the abortion and it can be completed during an audio phone visit or in-person.

Non-English and non-Spanish speaking patients, as well as those needing ASL interpretation, have the option to complete the consent in-person at a health center or virtually via telehealth with interpretation.

We cannot provide an abortion to anyone who has not completed this information session at least 24 hours before their appointment.

For patients who are UNDER 18, you must do your information session in person at a health center with a parent or legal guardian to sign for consent. The same parent or guardian must also accompany you to your procedure. If you do not have a parent or guardian who will do this for you, you can seek permission from a judge to continue with the procedure without parental or guardian consent. This is called judicial bypass. You can learn more about judicial bypass by downloading this info sheet.

If you are using insurance, please provide your insurance information when you are booking your appointment, so we can check your coverage.

Co-payments or any other out-of-pocket costs can be paid with cash or credit/debit card. If you are using a card with someone else's name on it, that person must be present in the health center and show their ID.
