Reproductive Health

(Family Planning Services) Contraception Services ​​​Access to quality contraceptive care is a fundamental reproductive health right, and an essential component of all primary preventive health care. Contraceptive and related sexual/reproductive health care involves exceedingly personal issues. Patients should have the freedom of choice to determine from where they obtain these services and supplies. This may include a setting separate from other primary care. Regardless of the source of care, practices that support informed choices, and timely and convenient access to contraceptive services and supplies are fundamental standards of care. Pregnancy Testing Services ​Pregnancy testing is an essential component of comprehensive family planning services and reproductive care. Early intervention with emergency contraception can prevent an unintended pregnancy, following a contraceptive failure (or no contraception). Early detection of pregnancy makes early pregnancy related care possible. Dual Protection ​Dual Protection (DP) is an essential component of comprehensive family planning services and reproductive health care. Dual Protection is the use of condoms to reduce the rick of sexually transmitted disease (STD) exposure and a contraceptive method to reduce the likelihood of unintended pregnancy. Sexual activity without dual protection will likely result in pregnancy and/or an STD for many patients. Dual protection is a reproductive health standard of care. Emergency Contraception Emergency contraception (EC) is an essential component of quality comprehensive family planning services and reproductive health care. EC is a backup contraceptive method and can prevent an unintended pregnancy following a contraceptive failure (or no contraception). Convenient and timely access to EC is a reproductive health standard of care. EC prescriptions and supplies should be readily available. Women can expect a contraceptive failure at some point in their lives. All women should be informed about and encouraged to have EC on-hand, as a back-up method of contraception. Having EC pills on-hand, in advance of actual need, increases the likelihood of early use when needed. EC does not replace the need for a primary contraceptive method. Patient Privacy and Confidentiality ​​Patient privacy is a fundamental patient health care right. Family planning and related reproductive/sexual health care services have a specific and unique privacy protections for patients. The Florence County Health Department have an obligation to safeguard family planning, reproductive health, and sexual health care (FP/RH/SH) information. These services include pregnancy tests and pregnancy-related care; sexually transmitted disease (STD) screening, diagnostic, or treatment services; contraceptive services; and other reproductive health care routinely accompanying contraceptive services. The Florence County Health Department can provide private and confidential FP/RH/SH care services to minors who provide consent for their own care, and have an obligation to continue to protect the minor's privacy rights under penalties of law, including HIPAA. A minor''s FP/RH/SH information cannot be released to parents or guardians, including acknowledgement that a minor is a patient, without prior written consent of the minor patient. Sexually Transmitted Disease/Infection (STD/STI) Services ​Sexually transmitted disease/infection (STD/STI) services - including patient education, screening, testing, and treatment - are essential components of quality comprehensive family planning services and reproductive health care. Practices should support two patient care prevention objectives: 1) to increase patient awareness of their personal STD/STI exposure risk; and 2) to motivate and support patients to adopt behaviors to reduce risk of STD/STI exposure. STD/STI prevention and intervention practices should be a routine part of all reproductive health care. ​Reproductive Health and Family Planning Brochure Available Upon Request.
