Yearly Exam & Birth Control


The Health Department will help you to "plan" your family when you are ready and prevent one when you are not. Our compassionate and understanding staff will perform a physical exam to access your overall physical and sexual health.

  • Birth control pills
  • Condoms
  • DEPO shots
  • Mirena
  • Nexplanon
  • Paragard

Minor Rights


We encourage you to include your parents in your decisions and care. However, under the Minor Consent Law (PDF), parental consent is not required for Family Planning services. Your confidentiality is protected under this law. The North Carolina Consent Law Services document provides more information about your rights.


Fees


Fees for minors who receive confidential family planning services are based on a sliding fee scale on the teen's income only and may result in no out of pocket expense.

No one is denied services based on income or health insurance status.
