Our Reproductive Health Services

Radiant Health Centers experienced team understands the individual needs of the LGBTQ+ community and assists with family planning, birth control, testing and more. Here are some of our primary services.

  • Family planning
  • Pelvic examinations
  • Clinical breast examinations
  • Contraceptive care
  • STD testing
  • Pregnancy testing

Many within the LGBTQ+ community face numerous barriers to healthcare. Along with discrimination and a lack of understanding, access to fertility treatment may be limited. Our family planning services provide safe and confidential guidance for LGBTQ+ people who have decided to start a family.

As part of our comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services, we assist patients with annual checkups. These checkups include a pelvic exam, HPV test, STD testing, breast exam, testicular exam and prostate screening. It is vital that men and women undergo periodic screenings, and do so without fear that a provider will lack understanding of LGBTQ+ issues.

Who Should Consider Using Reproductive Health Services?

Lesbian women face a risk of cervical cancer and STIs. However, a study found that lesbian women were 30% less likely to undergo annual routine physical exams than their heterosexual peers. Studies have also reported that compared with heterosexual women, lesbian and bisexual women have an increased risk of breast, cervical and ovarian cancer.

This lack of access to a regular provider also affects gay men and the wider LGBTQ+ community. An estimated 30% of the LGBTQ+ community does not seek healthcare services, or lacks a regular provider.

It’s important to remember that regular screenings are key to discovering diseases early, when treatment success rates are their highest.
