Are you a teen thinking about coming to Family Planning? Here’s some information we’d like you to know:

We Understand the Need for Protecting Your Privacy
In New York State, teens are allowed to seek birth control services without their parents’ involvement. We do encourage you to discuss your health care concerns with your parents or another trusted adult, but you can give your own consent for the care you receive at our health centers.
