Contraceptive Care

About this service

Contraceptive counseling is an important aspect of care for women's health. If you want to start or change your birth control, our practitioners can help you understand the birth control options that may be appropriate for you.

What to know before your visit

This service is only available to females 18 years or older, and is not available in Kentucky. In Nebraska, this service is available to females 19 years or older.

Prevention is an important part of staying healthy. The American Cancer Society recommends regular screening for prevention and early detection of cervical cancer:

  • All women should begin cervical cancer screening at age 21
  • Women between the ages 21 and 29 should have a Pap smear every 3 years
  • Women between the ages 30 and 65 should have both a Pap smear and an HPV test every 5 years
  • Women older than 65 with normal results of regular screening history do not need further screening. Those diagnosed with cervical pre-cancer should continue with screening tests

We do provide HPV vaccine, but we do not perform gynecology exams, pap smears, HPV tests or other invasive exams. Talk to your primary care doctor or gynecologist to make sure you are getting the care that is right for you.

Women with the following conditions may be directed to another health care setting:

  • Requests for cervical diaphragms or caps, implantable or intrauterine modalities
  • Current or past history of breast cancer
  • Lupus with a positive or unknown antiphospholipid Ab or Hughes Syndrome
  • Cirrhosis of the liver or liver tumors
  • Requests for birth control for reasons other than pregnancy prevention, such as dysfunctional uterine bleeding, menopausal symptoms or acne.
