OB/GYN

There are multiple Planned Parenthood locations in the Bay Area—you can search by city or zipcode, and schedule an appointment online.

Some caveats to Planned Parenthood:
Clients will be asked to provide address and phone number! If client doesn't have one, have them ask to be routed directly to the center where they want services to set up the appointment. Also, Planned Parenthood requires that you identify as either male or female on their intake form :|

Paying for OB/GYN services

  • If visiting Planned Parenthood, you can get help signing up for FamilyPACT—the process takes about 5 minutes and if you are eligible you can receive free OB/GYN services (e.g. birth control, UTI/yeast infection office visits). Note: these services do not cover abortions. You can sign up with any approved provider. Find one by zipcode on their website.
