Rights for Teenagers
As a teen, you have additional rights to privacy and consent for your own care, including:
- Mental health
- Substance abuse
- Birth control and pregnancy care
- Sexual health and STD treatment (14+)
At each of your check-ups, you will also be given time to talk to your provider one-on-one. Your privacy is important to us. Your appointment will be kept confidential (except in the case of a life-threatening issue).
We now offer Nexplanon, a birth control implant inserted under the skin of the upper arm. Talk to your provider to find out if this option is right for you.
