Birth Control Consultations & Prescriptions
Find the birth control method that is right for you.
Emergency contraception (EC) is available at Lake County Public Health free of charge while supplies last. EC should be taken within 120 hours of unprotected sex, but the sooner you take it the greater the chance of preventing a pregnancy.

- Does it cost to visit the family planning clinic?
Service costs are based on a sliding fee scale, meaning dependent upon how much money you make.
A student? Unemployed? No problem, no one will be denied services due to inability to pay.
We also accept Medicaid and personal insurance.
Donations are encouraged and appreciated and are necessary in keeping our services available!
- Do I need an appointment?
You are encouraged to make an appointment to save yourself time and frustration. When in doubt, call first. You can always talk to a nurse to find out if a visit is needed. Call ahead when requesting a birth control refill.
- Will my visit be confidential?
There are strict privacy laws regarding medical care. Your care and records are confidential. We need your written permission to share this information with anyone including parents & family members, partners or health care providers outside this Family Planning office.
- Can I access services as a teen?
- Title X Clinics DO NOT require written consent of parents or guardians for the provision of services. Nor can any Title X Clinic notify a parent or guardian before or after a minor accesses services.
- Montana Law allows for a minor to self-consent for services related to prevention and diagnosis of pregnancy and reportable sexually transmitted diseases (MCA 41-1-402)
- Providers of Title X family planning services must offer confidential services to adolescents.
That being said, it's totally understandable if your parents are worried about you. That's their job! Be sure to talk to them about your healthcare and choices when you are ready. Also, if we know you are being sexually abused by someone who is responsible for you (a parent, guardian, or other adult) we are responsible for helping you.
- Can I be tested for STDs the day after having sex?
Great question! Unfortunately, STDs will not show up (on either a test or symptomatically) until at least 2 to 3 weeks after sexual interaction with an infected person. We always recommend using condoms to help reduce your risk of contracting an STD.
