Did you know the Health Department offers free or low-cost family planning services, and also well-woman care?
Women of all ages, regardless of their reproductive status (menopause, hysterectomy, tubal ligation, etc.), can seek care (pelvic exams and Pap smears) from one of the Health Department’s providers.
The Health Department also offers reproductive health services, which are available to women of any age. It is important to note that there is no age of consent in Oregon for birth control; teens can make an appointment without their parents’ permission, and their parents won’t know they used Health Department services unless the teen tells her parents. At their appointment, the women will talk with a provider and select the birth control method which works best for them.
Providers also offer pregnancy testing, STI and HIV testing, health education and counseling, pre-pregnancy services and information and referral to other health and social services.
