At the Women’s Centers, we provide much more than just general health care services. We offer counseling, education and understanding about your body to empower you to make the best choices and decisions about your Reproductive Health Care.
Nearly half of the 6 million pregnancies in the U.S. are unwanted. Half of those unwanted pregnancies end in abortion. There is approximately 1.3 to 1.4 million pregnancies that end in abortion in the U.S. each year. There has been a slow but steady decrease in the abortion rate over the past 10 years. Twenty-five percent of the reduction is attributed to delay in intercourse (abstinence) and 75% is due to more effective birth control measures. In particular, the Depo-Provera shot and Birth Control Implants. Unfortunately, poor, black and Hispanic women have had a 20% increase in unwanted pregnancies and a slight increase in their abortion rates. This illustrates the need for these women to have access to Reproductive Health Care and Birth Control Services.
At our Women’s Centers we are doing everything possible to keep our gynecology fees as low as possible so that all women can have access to birth control and reproductive health care to help decrease unwanted pregnancy and prevent Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD’s).
Birth control pills do not prevent STDs, including HIV/AIDS. It is always best to use condoms regularly with your pills to prevent STDs.
