My period is 3 months late. Am I pregnant?

“My period is 3 months late. Took two pregnancy tests but both were negative. But I did have unprotected sex a few times. I don’t have health insurance, so I can’t go to the doctor to get this checked out. Do you think I’m actually pregnant and had false tests? What should I do?”

A: If concerned about pregnancy, we recommend making an appointment at Family Planning for a pregnancy test. The cost will be determined by your family size and income.


Am I eligible for the sliding fee scale?

Hello, I’m curious about eligibility and HIPPA. I’m working part time, going to school and am on my parents’ insurance. Could I be examined and buy birth control without using the insurance or having my parents find out? I have read about the sliding scale payments but want to make sure I am eligible and I want to make sure nothing turns up on the insurance statement.”

A: Family Planning provides confidentiality. A patient does not need parental consent to get on birth control. Our fees are based off of a sliding fee scale. This varies depending on a persons income. A patient can request not to have the cost submitted to their insurance.
