All our clinicians are trained in women’s health care. We offer routine gynecological exams; evaluation and treatment for gynecologic symptoms or problems; contraceptive and pregnancy counseling; education and evaluation for sexually transmitted infections; and self-care advice.
Getting birth control at the Student Health Service
- When you make an appointment for gynecological care, be sure to tell the receptionist whether it is for a routine gynecological exam (30 minutes), or for a gyn problem visit (20 minutes).
- Please be sure to schedule your routine gynecological exam when you will NOT have your period.
- Appointments are scheduled by calling 212-305-3400 during the hours SHS is open or via the web portal.
We no longer dispense oral contraceptive pills at the Student Health Service. We will give you a prescription to obtain your birth control at a local pharmacy. If you have not received a prescription for birth control from us before, or if you would like to start on birth control, please schedule an appointment with one of the clinicians to review your options. You will also need to have had a gynecological exam within the past 2 to 3 years. Please get a copy of the results of your last exam to have on your Student Health record. If it has been longer than 2 to 3 years since your last exam, all of our clinicians are experienced in women’s health and would be happy to see you.
