Birth Control Goes Way Back

People have used birth control for thousands of years. Today, we have many safe and effective methods available to us. 

You Know Best

Some people like methods that don't require a pill every day, or don't want to think about birth control in the heat of the moment. Our clinicians want to know what's important to you.

Free or Low-Cost

All of our services are free or low cost. Even methods like the IUD and implant are usually free, thanks to a generous grant from the Jerome L. Greene Foundation. 

Why Birth Control?

People use birth control for a range of reasons. It's not just for preventing unintended pregnancy. People who aren't sexually active or aren't having sex that can cause pregnancy may still be interested in birth control. 

Our clinicians are birth control experts and can help you understand whether birth control is right for you, and what method is best for your lifestyle and your body. Don't want a hormonal method, or don't want to think about birth control every day? No problem!
