Bailey Health Center provides full gynecological services, including routine yearly examinations with pap smear, screening and treatment of STDs, birth control counseling and prescriptions, the “morning after pill,” and confidential treatment of any other related concern.
A Health Center provider will perform the physical examination, and one of the health center nurses will assist. The physical examination is free. All lab specimens will be submitted to the lab you had indicated on your insurance form. We will notify you with the results.
All sexually active women are encouraged to have a cotton swab culture of the cervix to check for chlamydia and gonorrhea. Both diseases can be completely without symptoms and untreated chlamydia is the number one cause of infertility in this country.
To provide more privacy, all pelvic exams are performed on the second floor of the Bailey Health Center facing McCartney Street.
