The Contraceptive Choice Center (C3) at Washington University School of Medicine was founded in 2015 to deliver high-quality family planning services to teens, women, and men. C3 is committed to providing the St. Louis region with exceptional healthcare that is confidential, affordable, and patient-focused.
In addition to offering family planning services, C3 is also a leader in reproductive and contraceptive research. C3 accepts commercially insured, Medicaid, and uninsured patients, and individuals without health insurance may qualify for discounted services. The clinic receives funds from the Federal Title X Family Planning program and from individual donors who choose to uphold excellence and equity in reproductive healthcare.
When you give to C3, you are supporting a clinic that services St. Louis residents who might not otherwise be able to afford health care. Approximately, 28.8% of St. Louis City residents live at or below the federal poverty line, and the rate of uninsured individuals and families is higher in St. Louis City than the Missouri state average. As part of the Barnes-Jewish Community Health Needs Assessment, work groups identified “Reproductive & Sexual Health” as one of the top 12 community health needs for the St. Louis area. Your contribution will allow C3 to continue providing family planning services for women and men, including:
- Patient-centered contraceptive counseling
- Access to all methods of reversible contraception, including highly effective contraceptive methods such as intrauterine devices (IUDs) and implants
- Preventative gynecologic care
- Cervical cancer screening
- Sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and treatment
- Emergency contraception
- Pregnancy testing
