Women desiring prescription contraceptives should make an appointment to visit the contraceptive clinic at the Birkam Health Center. Before receiving a prescription, you will receive instruction on various contraceptive methods, breast self-exam and STD's. You will also receive a complete physical, including pelvic exam, PAP smear (if appropriate) and breast exam(see Womens’s Health Clinic for PAP recommendations). After a thorough evaluation, the doctor will talk to you about which contraceptive is best for you (i.e. birth control pills, DEPO-PROVERA shor, diaphragm or condoms).
