With caring and confidential help from AWH, you receive the support you need to make positive health decisions for things such as:
*Some restrictions apply. Not all will qualify.
No insurance? No problem.
No one is turned away for inability to pay. Allen Women's Health is a Title 10 agency serving northeast Iowa for low or no cost birth control options and annual exams (supported in part by Title X contract #5882MH24). For answers to your health questions, please contact AWH at (319) 235-5090.
We'll help you decide which method of birth control is right for you. Allen Women's Health offers a variety of methods to fit your needs and lifestyle, including:
- Oral contraceptives
- Depo-Provera injection
- Ortho Evra patch
Is long-term, reversible birth control the right option for you?
We offer three different kinds of long-term implantable birth control for women:
- Paraguard is inserted into your uterus and is effective for up to 10 years.
- Mirena is inserted into your uterus and is effective for up to five years.
- Skyla is inserted into your uterus and is effective for up to three years.
- Nexplanon is inserted into your arm and is effective for up to three years.
Benefits to long-term birth control include:
- Birth control you hardly ever have to think about
- Birth control that's proven at least 99% effective in preventing pregnancy
- Reversible birth control that can be removed at any time. This means if you change your mind, you can choose to try to get pregnant when you want
- Discreet birth control that usually can't be seen or even felt
- Birth control with minimal side effects
- Simple, worry-free birth control that helps you control your life
Some birth control methods are free for those who qualify. We also offer low-cost options for those who don't. Schedule your appointment today to learn which method, if any, is right for you. Call (319) 235-5090.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are so common that more than half of all sexually active adults will have become infected by the age of 25. STDs can be serious illnesses that do not go away unless they are treated.
Many people who have a sexually transmitted disease (STD) in their body
don't know they're infected. There is no single test that can check for
every STD, but we'll help you decide if you should be tested; when you
should be tested; what type of tests you may need to have; and how much
(if anything) the test will cost. STD testing for everyone, including
teens, is confidential.
Most STDs can be treated with antibiotics. Don't let fear, embarrassment or lack of insurance keep you from getting diagnosed and treated. Stop worrying, and get confidential help from Allen Women's Health.
We offer testing and treatment for illnesses including:
To schedule your STD test, call (319) 235-5090.
The Gardasil vaccine is available and effective for males and females
ages 9-27. It helps protect against nine types of Human Papilloma Virus

cancers, and anal cancer. For additional information please see Gardasil.com.
Your privacy is important to us. We don't want you to avoid scheduling a visit because you're worried about someone finding out. Even if you're under 18, you can still trust us to help you confidentially.
The information you give your healthcare providers and the details of your visit are completely confidential. This means we won't tell anyone anything-unless there's an emergency.
