Family Planning

Our certified health educators provide accurate, non-judgemental, and unbiased information related to reproductive health. Schedule a confidential, one-one-one session by calling 323-343-3300.

These confidential sessions help students assess their pregnancy risk (getting pregnant or getting someone else pregnant) and review contraceptive options available to them at the SHC or local family planning providers.

HPEC provides counseling on the full range of contraceptive options including: the pill, the patch, the ring, the shot, the implant, IUDs, condoms, natural family planning, and abstinence.

Education is provided in a confidential and non-judgmental atmosphere where students can feel comfortable asking questions and receive unbiased information about all the contraceptive options available, how to correctly use them, pros and cons, and how to access them.

These confidential sessions provide counseling and education on all options available for students who are pregnant including adoption, abortion, or parenting. Students will receive support and appropriate resources based on their preferences.

These sessions are available for students who have questions about sexually transmitted diseases and provide connections to testing and treatment as appropriate. Health educators provide medically accurate information about transmission, risk assessment, and methods of prevention in a confidential setting.
