Women's Reproductive
and Sexual Health

Montana’s Family Planning Program aims to improve women’s and men’s sexual and reproductive health and reduce the rate of unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. Family planning clinics provide confidential, comprehensive reproductive health services, education and outreach in communities around the state.

Family planning clinics provide comprehensive reproductive health services to both women and men, regardless of ability to pay. Clinics offer a sliding fee scale for individuals with low incomes and those without insurance. You can also use Medicaid or other insurance to cover family planning services – just remember to bring your card to your appointment.
