In the UHS Women's Health Clinic, nurse practitioners certified in women's or family healthcare and registered nurses provide care by appointment. Available services:

The Women's Health Clinic offers:

  • Routine annual women's health exams that include:
    • Pelvic exam
    • Pap smear to screen for cervical cancer as appropriate
    • Clinical breast exam and breast self-exam instruction
    • Sexually transmitted infection (STI) screening as appropriate and upon request
    • Birth control (contraception) and management
  • Contraception advice and prescriptions
  • Sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and treatment
  • HIV testing
  • Care for menstrual concerns (cramps, irregular bleeding, PMS, other related problems)
  • Pregnancy testing and referrals
  • Breast health assessment
  • Evaluation and treatment for other common women's health issues such as:
    • Vaginal infections
    • Urinary tract infections
    • Emergency contraception prescriptions for students ages 17 and younger. (No prescription is necessary for women ages 18 and up.)

When you call for an appointment, please be specific about your needs so that we can schedule you with the most appropriate healthcare provider. If you are a transgender student and you think your needs would be better met in the UHS General Medicine Clinic, just tell our appointment staff the reason(s) you are seeking care and that you prefer an appointment in the General Medicine Clinic. They will schedule you accordingly.

Click Healthy Sexuality in Helpful Links for more information about women's health, annual exams, birth control methods, or any of the health issues listed above. Women's Health Clinic healthcare providers will refer patients to appropriate community resources for services not available at UHS.

Due to high demand, please schedule routine annual exams at least two weeks in advance.
