Let PIWH guide you through the information. We follow current guidelines, and if treatment procedures are required, most are performed easily in the office. We also offer the gardasil vaccine in office for patient's who meet current guideline criteria.
Which birth control is right for me? Talk to your provider at PIWH about all the options, including hormonal methods, IUDs, nexplanon, barrier methods, and permanent options.
