Florida's family planning and related preventive health services are available to both males and females. Family planning services are provided on a voluntary basis in a confidential manner. Culturally sensitive information and the value of planning your pregnancies are available in order to make an informed decision regarding the use of birth control.

Services 

Individuals have access to FDA-approved birth control methods and supplies, abstinence counseling, and information to all who want and are in need of these services with priority given to persons from low-income families. Services are provided on a sliding scale fee, based on family household income and size. Persons determined to have incomes up to 100% of poverty do not pay fees for services.

Services available include pregnancy testing and counseling, physical examinations, screening for hypertension, breast and cervical cancer, and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV counseling and testing. Also available is counseling and education for health promotion and disease prevention. Follow-up and referral services are offered based on the individual's history and need for medical and/or social services.

Family planning plays a key role in the prevention of unintended pregnancy, including teen pregnancy. Preventing unintended pregnancy also reduces the incidence of abortion and improves birth outcomes. In addition, family planning information, education, and services reduce both the incidence and impact of sexually transmitted diseases through screening and treatment.
