  • Abortion Care
    • The Abortion Pill is a safe way to end an early pregnancy, up to 10 weeks from the first day of your last menstrual period. You take one medicine in the office, then you take a second medicine 1-2 days later at home. Plan to be at our office for 1-2 hours. Take a look at these Abortion Pill instructions for more information and watch the video:
    • In-Clinic Abortion is a safe way to end a pregnancy. You have a procedure in the office to empty your uterus, you recover, then you go home. Plan to be at our office for 2-5 hours. To be prepared for the abortion, please take 800mg of Ibuprofen one hour before your appointment. For more information about comfort measures (options for sedation or pain medicine), and to find out whether or not to eat before your appointment, call 1-866-476-1321.

    • Depo (The Shot) Repeat:
      • You are at increased risk of pregnancy if you do not get your Depo shot on time.
      • If you are outside your date range, you may or may not receive the shot that day depending on your pregnancy risk.
    • Emergency Contraception
      • E-Contra EZ: If you are paying out of pocket, simply walk into any health center during our open hours and you can pick up E-Contra EZ. The cost is $30.
      • Ella: If you'd like Ella, you'll need to make an appointment to obtain a prescription.
      • IUD: Make sure to book an appointment within 5 days of unprotected sex. 1 hour prior to your visit, take 800mg of Ibuprofen.
    • IUD insert:
      • It's possible an IUD insert may not happen on the day of your appointment, for many reasons that vary from person to person. The practitioner who sees you will make that determination and will work with you to find solutions.
      • To be prepared for the insertion, please take 800mg of Ibuprofen one hour prior to your appointment with a light meal.
    • IUD removal:
      • If you are changing your birth control method, or replacing your IUD, you should abstain from sex for five days prior to your removal date in order to maintain protection from pregnancy.
    • Implant (Nexplanon):
      • It's possible an implant insert may not happen on the day of your appointment, for many reasons that vary from person to person. The practitioner who sees you will make that determination and will work with you to find solutions.
      • You will be able to have your insertion at any time during your menstrual cycle, regardless of your current (if any) birth control method.
      • We may recommend pregnancy testing and/or Emergency Contraception at the time of your insertion if you've had unprotected sex during your current menstrual cycle.
    • Pregnancy Testing
      • Please try not to urinate one hour prior to your appointment, as you will need to give a sample after checking in.
      • If you are experiencing any pain or bleeding, please contact our scheduling team directly at 866-476-1321.
    • STD Testing:
      • The practitioner will discuss testing options with you and evaluate your risk factors for STDs based on history and exposure and recommend testing for you.
      • Visits routinely include screening for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and HIV.
      • *Some STIs can take up to 3 months from exposure to show up on a test, but others can be detected in as little as 2 weeks. Give us a call at 866-476-1321 for more information.
      • You may need to provide a urine sample. For the best results, we ask you not to urinate (or ejaculate) for one hour prior to your appointment
    • Urinary Tract Infection:
      • If you are experiencing symptoms of a urinary tract infection (UTI), we can still see you.
      • Do not urinate or ejaculate for one hour prior to your appointment, as you may need to provide samples at your appointment.

    • Well Woman Check Up:
      • PPNNE recommends an annual well woman visit for all women 21 and over. Based on your age, health history and Pap history, the practitioner may or may not recommend a Pap test or breast exam on the day of your appointment.
