Public Health

The mission of the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) is to protect the public through promoting individual, community, and environmental health. 

Public Health Family Planning

Our family planning staff works to reduce the incidence of maternal and infant morbidity/mortality by promoting education and encouragement for responsible parenthood.

Educational and support services include:

Annual Exams

Having a yearly gynecological exam is an important aspect of responsible preventive health care and ensuring your physical and reproductive well-being.  Women should have a gynecological exam every year whether or not they are due for a Pap smear.

Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening

Our Public Health Clinics are a provider of Every Women Counts (EWC), a state sponsored program that provides free clinical breast exams, mammograms, pelvic exams, and Pap tests to California’s underserved women.

Birth Control Resources

It is important to find the birth control method that best fits your individual needs. Understanding your options will help you to have an informed conversation with your health care provider about choosing the best birth control method for you.

Emergency Contraceptives

Emergency contraception, or emergency birth control, is used to help keep a woman from getting pregnant after she has had sex without using birth control or if the birth control method failed.

Pregnancy Testing

Whether you are trying to get pregnant or are concerned about an unplanned pregnancy, a pregnancy test is an important tool.  Knowing you are pregnant as soon as possible can help you make the decisions that are right for you.

 

In addition to the service listed above, the clinic also offers reproductive and pre-conception care counseling. We currently accept Cash, Anthem Blue Cross Partnership Plan, CA Health & Wellness, Every Women Counts, Family PACT and Medi Cal.
