Your thing? The perfect playlist. 
Our thing? Birth control. 

Planned Parenthood of Metro DC believes birth control should be as individual as you are. Our providers are experts in the full range of birth control methods, and we can help you choose a method that’s right for you!

Let's talk birth control.

Let's be honest: Birth control isn't one size fits all. 

There are so many different options out there. To name just a few of the variations: hormonal vs. non-hormonal, oral contraception, injection, long-acting reversible options, etc. 

Learn more about each option - and what may work best for you.

Check out our available appointments and talk to a clinician about which option is best for you.

We're here to help, with or without insurance!

PPMW provides high-quality care - whether you have insurance or not. If you have insurance, you may be able to receive your birth control without a co-pay!

Let's talk birth control. 

Here at PPMW, we want our health services to fit your lifestyle. While we encourage you to make an appointment, birth control prescription pick-up services are available on a walk-in basis at our Suitland, MD, Gaithersburg, MD and Washington, DC health centers. Birth control appointments are available during all business hours by appointment. 

During your birth control appointment, you may be required to get a pelvic exam, a breast exam, and / or a pap smear. 

Please bring your health insurance information, if any, with you to your appointment. 

Free condoms

Condoms are the only form of birth control that protect against both STDs and pregnancy. Good news! Planned Parenthood of Metro DC offers free condoms at each of our three health centers. Just walk in during health center hours and ask for some male or internal condoms!
