Scheduling an Appointment

Available Birth Control Methods

Free condoms are available on a walk-in basis. Latex-free condoms are also available upon request.

Methods of birth control available at Family Planning include Depo-Provera ("the shot"), a variety of birth control pills, the birth control patch, and Nuvaring. Referrals are available for other birth control methods.

Birth Control pick-up hours are Monday, 8 am to noon and Thursday from 1 to 4:15 pm.

Pregnancy termination (abortion) services are not available at the Livingston County Health Department.

Male Services

A healthy man is a sexy man!

We all know it takes two to tango, folks. This is why it is so important that both men and women participate in Family Planning. Coming in for an annual physical exam, STD testing, and conversation with an Advanced Practice Nurse and educator is an act of respect for both yourself and your partner. Show yourself some love and give us a call today to schedule your appointment.

We bill all types of insurance and will make accommodations for those without insurance.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccination

Gardasil is the vaccine given to prevent most types of cervical cancer. Gardasil is available to qualifying Family Planning Clinic clients. Gardasil, the HPV vaccine, is proven to prevent certain strains of HPV that cause cancers, including cervical, penile, vaginal, vulvar, anal, and oropharyngeal (more prevalent in males than females). High-risk human papillomavirus (hr-HPV) genital infection is the most common sexually transmitted infection among women. Though Gardasil does not treat existing infection, vaccination is still recommended for HPV-positive individuals, as it may protect against one or more different strains of the disease.

Though everyone ages 9 up to age 27 may receive the vaccine, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends all boys and girls ages 11 to 12 receive the HPV vaccine to protect against HPV-related infections and cancers. Anyone starting the series before the age of 15 should receive two doses of HPV vaccine, with at least six months between the first and second doses. Adolescents who receive the two doses less than five months apart will require a third dose of HPV vaccine. Teens and young adults who start the series at ages 15 through 26 years still need three doses of HPV vaccine. Three doses are also recommended for people with certain immunocompromising conditions aged 9 through 26 years.

Some adults age 27 through 45 years who are not already vaccinated may decide to get HPV vaccine after speaking with their doctor about their risk for new HPV infections and the possible benefits of vaccination.
