Family Planning Services

The ABCD Family Planning Partnership provides comprehensive, confidential family planning and sexual health counseling, education and medical care for tens of thousands of Boston area residents a year in community health centers, school-based health centers, and hospital primary care programs.


ABCD Family Planning services are conveniently located. We partner with health centers throughout Boston including the neighborhoods of Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, and Roxbury.



You can receive ABCD Family Planning services regardless of your gender, immigration status, or whether or not you have health insurance. All health centers will help you sign up for insurance and refer you for other types of assistance you may need. You may be eligible for free family planning services if you need confidential services or if you qualify financially.



The ABCD Family Planning Partnership offers services including:

  • Sexual health counseling and education by specially trained counselors who speak your language, including special counseling.
  • Pregnancy testing and counseling.
  • If you don’t want to get pregnant, all methods of birth control are explained, and you can choose and receive the method that you think will work best for you.
  • If you do want to get pregnant, education and services are provided to help you have a healthy pregnancy.
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) counseling, testing, and treatment.
  • HIV testing, prevention education, and referrals for care.
  • Health exams, pap smears, and other lab tests.
  • All services are voluntary (no one will force you to do anything) and confidential: all information you give will be kept between you and your care provider.
