In the United States, almost half of all pregnancies are unintended. Yet, many safe and highly effective methods of birth control are available to prevent unintended pregnancy. Women with unintended pregnancies are less likely to obtain early prenatal care and their babies are at increased risks of both low birth weight and preterm birth, which can cause health and development issues all through their lives. An unintended pregnancy can also limit the education and employment opportunities of both parents often leading to significant financial challenges.
That is why JCPH is dedicated to offering the following services:
- Pregnancy testing and all options counseling
- Treatment of minor gynecological problems
- Abstinence counseling
- Emergency Contraceptive Pill
- STD Clinic
- HIV Confidential Counseling & Testing
- Teen Health Program
All services are confidential and parental consent is not necessary for minors. In most cases, a birth control method can be started on your first appointment. More information can be found at www.jeffco.us/health
