Family planning services can help address these and other public health challenges by providing education, counseling, and medical services.
Family Planning is a program that is subsidized by the Title X from the US government to facilitate access to family planning services including preparing for pregnancy, preventing unintended pregnancy, birth control, condoms, and screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections. Family planning is a special program because patients without insurance may receive discounts or free services based on their income level. Even patients with insurance may receive benefits from these services at OHI. Another benefit of this program is that services can be kept completely confidential if requested by the patient.

- Plan B: The morning-after pill is not the most effective form of birth control but if you have unprotected sex, it may be better than not doing anything. The morning after pill should be taken as soon as possible up to 72-120 hours after unprotected sex. Please discuss more effective contraception with one of the doctors or nurse-midwives.
- Safer sex: The only way to eliminate the risk of getting an STD is to abstain from sex. Condoms reduce the risk of transmission of STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, genital herpes, HPV, trichomoniasis, or syphilis.
- Basic infertility care: Have you been trying to conceive for more than 6 months? If so, please schedule an appointment for evaluation and treatment options.
