Birth control can do lots of things besides prevent pregnancy. It can help make painful periods hurt less and stop heavy bleeding. Because who wants painful, heavy periods? We’ve got lots of birth control options here in the clinic. You won’t even need to stop at the pharmacy, so you have more time to go live your life!
It takes just a few minutes, so you’ll know before you leave.
We’ll ask you to pee in a cup and then we’ll run the tests. If you don’t hear from us a few days, then you can assume your tests are negative – high five! The most common STDs we see with the pee test are chlamydia and gonorrhea. If you want us to look for HIV or syphilis, we can do that with a blood test. For herpes and warts, we have to see a bump or sore to know what’s going on. If you can’t pee when you come see us, we can still test you with a small cotton swab in your vagina or penis. Yep, it can be done, but most people prefer to pee.
We can give you a very safe high-dose birth control pill that may prevent the release of an egg. It won’t affect your current birth control method but could change the timing of your period. This is not an abortion pill, and it won’t harm an existing pregnancy.
