Women's Clinic

Boynton Women’s Health specializes in services for people of all gender and sexual orientation through all phases of life. Whether you are being seen for your wellness exam, sexual health or a specific gynecologic concern, the clinic staff provides you with the health knowledge you need to make informed decisions and to live a healthy lifestyle. The clinic also has a private space for people who are breastfeeding to nurse or pump.

Key Services

Wellness Visit

Your wellness visit will be tailored to your personal and family medical history and may include a breast/chest exam, pelvic exam, testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and a Pap test to look for cervical cancer. (Pap tests are recommended to begin at age 21.)

This exam is intended to discuss ways to keep you healthy and complete routine screening tests. If you have specific problems or concerns, these may be better addressed at a separate appointment.


Pregnancy Testing, Counseling, and Education

Pregnancy can be detected as early as 14 days after conception with a urine pregnancy test. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate but we also can do them at Gopher Quick Clinic and in the Women’s Clinic. If you are pregnant, our providers can provide education, options counseling, and pregnancy resources. Boynton health does not offer abortion services or obstetrical care.


Birth Control Counseling and Prescriptions

Our providers will guide you in choosing a birth control method that is right for you. We can provide a prescription for hormonal contraceptive pills, patches, rings, diaphragms or the shot. In addition we provide the contraceptive implant and intrauterine devices (IUDs). (IUDs and implants require a consultation visit prior to insertion). Also our providers can provide information about condom use, emergency contraception and fertility awareness. Emergency contraception is also available.

(See Birth Control for more information about your birth control options.)


Pre-conception Care

Boynton offers women who are considering pregnancy information and resources to help them have a healthy pregnancy. We do not offer obstetrical care during your pregnancy.


Fertility Evaluations

The average couple takes 9 months to conceive and isn’t considered to have a fertility problem until they have been actively trying to get pregnant for 18 months. We are available to discuss basic evaluation and treatment of infertility and provide you with resources in the community who are capable of offering more sophisticated technology to help attain pregnancy. Once you are pregnant, we can help you find a provider who can take of you during your pregnancy.


Gynecologic Infection Treatment

Our providers evaluate, test and treat common vaginal infections and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).


Management of Menstrual Irregularities, Menopausal Transitions, and Hormonal Issues
