Michigan Central District Health Department offers family planning program

With rising rates of teen pregnancy, it’s time to focus even more on education and prevention. Although parental involvement is not required, the Michigan Central District Health Department encourages teens to talk to their parents or an adult they trust about the consequences that follow risky behaviors. Believe it or not, children want to know what their parents think.

The CMDHD Family Planning Program has caring nurse practitioners and registered nurses who work in our
desks. Services include:

  • Annual (physical) examinations, including tests for sexually transmitted infections.
  • A full range of birth control information, including abstinence education.
  • A variety of birth control methods including birth control pills, injections, rings, IUDs, implants,
    condoms, natural family planning and emergency contraception.
  • Pregnancy tests, advice and referrals.
  • Screening referrals for breast and cervical cancer, as well as other health conditions.
  • Client education and counseling, as well as community education.
  • Follow-up visits and referrals for social and medical issues.
  • Sending prescriptions we order to your local pharmacy.

Parents and other trusted adults are encouraged to call or visit our clinics for a visit. This is available even if your teen is not using health department family planning services. We encourage community members, parents, clergy, teachers, and teens to join our Family Planning Advisory Council, which meets twice a year to discuss family planning needs in our communities.
