Birth Control Methods

The Family Planning Program offers preventative health services to men and women during their child-bearing years. Preconceptual health information and physical exams are provided to both men and women planning a pregnancy, as well as those patients who may desire a method of birth control to prevent a pregnancy. Birth control methods are dispensed on site, by referral or prescription.

Below, you will find more information about the birth control options we provide. For more information about our Family Planning Program, please click here.
