Try looking in the phone book under Women's health clinics. Or you can try calling a local WIC office and see if they can help you locate a place which can help you.

Re: Family Planning??? HELP!

Well you can see your regular doctor. If you do this he/she CAN NOT tell your parents why you were there. You can get your pap exams done and get a prescription for birth control without your family having to know why you were there.
The ways you can go about that is talk to your mother that you are experiencing pain and you are worried and want to see your doctor. Or say that you are having a discharged and again you are worried and want to see your doctor. Or you can say that your periods are being strange and you would like to talk to your doctor about it. Then when you get in to see the doctor explain why you are really there. Trust me they have heard it all and will be understanding.

It doesn't matter if the doc is a family friend. Legaly he has no right to tell anybody anything about you without your consent or a court telling him to do so. You can go see him and before you tell him anything ask if he is going to keep it confidential. You have a right to privacy. I know here (canada) the doctor will not disclose any information to your parents without your consent.

Re: Family Planning??? HELP!

i know this may sound weird, but there are a few abortion clinics that offer birth control pills.. well the one i went to was sort of a private clinic. it's also a gyno clinic so you can go in for pap smears and stuff.. they offered me 6 month supply of free birth control pills when i have my pap smear done over there and after those 6 months, i have to get a prescription good enough for another 6 months.. anyone have an idea how much pap smears cost? having an unltrasound is $50! didn't think it would cost that much.

Hi Jennifer
You mentioned that you lived somewhere between Panama City and Destin, (don't post where you live though! ha!) I just went halfway between and looked up Fort Walton area or Okaloosa County (my parents live near there). In the yellow pages there is a listing for the Okaloosa County Health Dept. phone: 833-9247. No matter what county you live in, there is a health department, so look in your yellow or white pages, it will be listed under your county name + "Health Department" or "WIC" or something like that. They provide free birth control, check ups, and will answer all of your questions. They cannot tell your parents unless you give them permission. I hope this helps. The ideal would be to wait, but if you're going to do it, be protected at least.
