Our Health Services

Abortion Services and Options Counseling

Abortion is a safe and legal way to end pregnancy. There are two kinds of abortion in the U.S. — in-clinic abortion and the abortion pill.

Annual GYN Exams

Part of taking good care of yourself is having regular annual exams with your doctor. Your annual exam is all about you, your body, and your reproductive health.

Bacterial Vaginosis

Healthy vaginas come with bacteria in them. But changes in the balance of the different kinds of bacteria in your vagina can lead to bacterial vaginosis (BV).

Birth Control

Birth control is a safe and easy way to prevent pregnancy. Some types of birth control can also help treat certain health problems or provide other health benefits — like making periods lighter and less painful.

Breast Cancer Screenings

Clinical breast examinations can detect a lump in your breast and other changes that might require more testing. Breast exams are one of the most important early breast cancer screenings.

Cervical Cancer Screenings

Cervical cancer is cancer of the cervix. It’s caused by some types of HPV, a common sexually transmitted infection. It can be prevented by getting the HPV vaccine, early detection, and treatment.

Colposcopy

Colposcopy is a way to get a close-up look at your cervix. It’s a quick and easy way to find cell changes in your cervix that may turn into cancer.

Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is a treatment that prevents cervical cancer. Your doctor uses a chemical to freeze abnormal cells off your cervix so normal ones can grow back.

Emergency Contraception (Morning-After Pill)

Emergency contraception can stop a pregnancy before it starts. That means it's not the abortion pill. It works up to five days, or 120 hours, after unprotected sex.

Essure (Female Sterilization)

For women, we are happy to offer Essure, a permanent birth control procedure that works with your body to create a natural barrier to prevent pregnancy.

HIV Testing and Counseling

You can’t tell if you have HIV just by the way you feel, because most people who get HIV don’t have any symptoms for years. The only way to know for sure if you have HIV is to get tested.

HPV Vaccine

HPV stands for an human papillomavirus. It’s the most common sexually transmitted infection.

Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP)

LEEP is a type of treatment that prevents cervical cancer. LEEP removes abnormal cells from your cervix, and it’s effective and safe.

Pap Smears and HPV Testing

Pap tests find abnormal cell changes in your cervix. How often you get a Pap test depends on your age, medical history, and the results of your last Pap or HPV tests.

Pregnancy Testing

Whether you need a pregnancy test or are looking for information or services related to your pregnancy options, fertility, prenatal care, or pregnancy loss, Planned Parenthood is here to help.

Prostate Cancer Screenings

Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in America. Regular prostate cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood can catch any possible problems early. 

STD Testing and Treatment

Anybody who has oral, anal, or vaginal sex, or genital skin-to-skin contact with another person can get STDs — in fact, almost all sexually active people get one at some point in their life.

Testicular Cancer Screenings

Testicular cancer can happen in one or both testicles, and can affect people of any age. If it’s caught early, testicular cancer is treatable and usually curable.

Urinary Tract Infections

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection of the urinary system, including your bladder and urethra. Anyone can get a UTI, but they’re more common if you have a vulva.

Vasectomy

Vasectomy — also called male sterilization — is a surgical procedure. It is meant to protect against pregnancy permanently, so it’s super effective.

Yeast Infections and Vaginitis

Vaginitis is an irritation of your vagina or vulva. It’s super common and usually easy to treat. Almost everyone with a vulva gets vaginitis at some point.
