We offer women’s health services to women regardless of age. Parental support is encouraged but not required for minors. Your first visit into the program is offered by appointment on Wednesdays only.
At your first visit a nurse will do a health history, lab work, blood pressure, discuss birth control options and give instruction. The Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner will perform a physical exam, pap smear and prescribe a type of birth control if needed.
If birth control is ordered it will be sent to a pharmacy of your choice. If Depo-Provera injections are ordered then they can be done at the Health Department by appointment.
Screening for Sexually Transmitted Diseases can also be done at the initial or annual appointment. There will be no additional lab bill sent to you from your appointment. The are fees based on age and income. Please call your local health department office for further assistance.
