Hi, Yes, you can contact your


Yes, you can contact your local Planned Parenthood. With the new laws you may have to pay a small amount of money for them now. They also offer condoms which may still be free. Planned Parenthood is designed to help young people in your situation and prevent unplanned pregnancies. Everything is confidential they will NOT call your home (for any reason) in many cases an appointment is not necessary but it a good idea to make one in case they are busy that day so you don't end up having to go back another day. Please check the website below and follow the instructions for finding a Planned Parenthood in your area.

Best of Luck,
