Visit Checklist

It’s important to know that clinic staff are eager to make your visit a positive experience and answer all of your questions. You can prepare for a successful visit by thinking about what you want to discuss with your provider during your visit.

Here are some things you may want to think about when deciding on a birth control method. Talk them over with your health care provider.

Ask yourself:​
Ask your provider:

Checkbox How often do I want to have a period?
Checkbox Do I want to have a baby? If so, when?
Checkbox Can I remember to use a method everyday?
Checkbox Am I comfortable touching my vaginal area?
Checkbox Will my partner like this method?
Checkbox How do I feel about getting shots?
Checkbox Do I know where I can get emergency contraception if I need it?

Checkbox How does this method work?
Checkbox How do I use it?
Checkbox How well does it work to prevent pregnancy?
Checkbox Will I have side effects?
Checkbox What do I do if I don’t like it?
Checkbox What do I do if this method doesn’t work for me?

 

Don’t forget to bring:

Checkbox Proof of Citizenship:

    • Your U.S. Birth Certificate or Passport. Can’t find it? No worries, you can still be seen and we can help you get proof.

OR

  • If you were born outside of the U.S. and have been a lawful permanent resident for five or more years you do not need to bring any additional documentation.


Checkbox Identification like a driver's license or state identification card (something that has your picture or physical description).

Checkbox Health insurance information, if you have coverage.
