We are honored to serve as your healthcare provider, and we are here to support you.
Since the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, we have heard concerns and received questions about the future of reproductive health care in Virginia. It is important to remember that abortion is still legal in Virginia.
We know this is a very distressing time, and that in addition to uncertainty around access to abortion, you may also have questions about how this decision could impact our patients’ ability to access gender affirming care. While it's true you may have seen headlines that other states such as Alabama and Florida are considering restricting access to gender affirming care, this has no impact on Virginians at this current time.
We want to reassure you that you can still access gender affirming hormone care, including hormone therapy, at VLPP. It is your right. The demand for gender affirming hormone care is rising and the SCOTUS situation is impacting our ability to see patients as promptly as we normally would. These services are important and we are committed to providing them. Our doors are open, and we will continue to provide the gender affirming health care you need to make decisions about your body, your life, and your future.
If you need to make an appointment or get in touch, you can call us at 804-355-4358 or 757-499-7526.
The Virginia League for Planned Parenthood is proud to offer affirming primary care, sexual and reproductive health care to patients throughout Central and Eastern Virginia through a model of informed consent.
Informed Consent is a model of care in which patients are able to access hormones during a visit with their provider, where they'll discuss the risks and benefits of care. No visit with a mental health professional is required.
Gender affirming care at our health centers includes hormone prescriptions and linkage to additional care as needed.
