Questions encouraged! If you need privacy, Anon is on or you can specify in your ask to answer privately, if necessary.
I don’t know where you’re located so I can’t look up the actual location that you might be dealing with. The services that each Planned Parenthood clinic are equipped to provide will vary by location, sometimes by a lot depending on what state you’re in and their funding situation.
If you go to their website you can type in your zip code and find the ones closest to you. By selecting each one (if there’s more than one) you can find out what services they offer. You can also check their office hours.
It’s hard to know what the pricing will be without knowing your specific situation, whether you have insurance or qualify for medicaid, and of course price can vary depending on birth control method.
If you are uninsured, you may qualify for a state-funded program or a lower fee scale. You’ll want to bring the following documents with you:
If you have never been on birth control before or gone to have a sexual health check up, you can expect to fill out some paper work and talk to a doctor about your sexual history. Most sexual health check ups require a pelvic exam, although some locations may be able to provide birth control services without one if you qualify.
If you are just looking for a new prescription or a refill, Planned Parenthood can talk to you about all the different options available and their various pros and cons. I think it depends on the location as to whether they’re capable of doing birth control consultations and prescriptions on a walk-in basis or if you have to make an appointment.
Also, planned parenthood has a tumblr! I’m sorry I can’t give you any more specific information with what few details you’ve given me, but I hope that helps. If you have more specific questions feel free to send me more asks, or if you can come off of anon and want to talk privately I can do that too (but to be honest I probably won’t be able to give you specific prices.)
