Birth Control

At our patient-oriented Center, we are here to give you many birth control options.

If you are having a termination of pregnancy at our Center, we can provide you with birth control options up to 12 months following your procedure. This gives you time to schedule an appointment with your OB/GYN for a women’s wellness exam.

We offer several birth control options on the day of your procedure.
