If you would like contraception from the Women’s Center and have never used anything in the past, please start by reviewing our page on contraception and the CDC website.

Women take contraception for reasons in addition to preventing pregnancy.  Please discuss with the provider at the Women’s Center if you are having severe menstrual pain, irregular periods, heavy menstrual bleeding, or severe PMS symptoms.

When you call the Women’s Center at 765-285-8035, you will be required to attend a group class to learn more about available contraceptive options, STI testing and cervical cancer screenings.  After attending a class, you will then be able to make an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner.  Some questions will be asked regarding your health history, your family history, smoking history and sexual history.    You will be given three months of medication and asked to follow up with a visit after that time for a weight, blood pressure check and medication refill.

If you are wanting the Women’s Center to continue contraception that another medical provider has been managing, then please click the link to download the Release of Information form.  Complete the form and either send it directly to your medical provider or fax to the Women’s Center at 765-285-8493.  We will then fax it to your medical provider so that we can obtain your medical records.  Please call us to make sure that we have received your records within one week.

We do follow current ASCCP (American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology)  guidelines which indicate a first liquid based pap smear, which is a cervical cancer screening test, should be performed at age 21. 

If you cannot get an appointment before your contraceptive is going to run out, please call the Women’s Center to discuss your options.
