Services to help you before your pregnancy or sexual health related concern

Health Assessment

This assessment checks your blood pressure, heart rate, weight, etc. There’s also an opportunity to discuss and evaluate your sexual health. Our medical team will address any areas of concern, help improve your general health and well-being, and provide referrals if necessary.

STD/STI Testing

Blood and urine tests are used to look for commonly occurring sexually transmitted diseases and infections that can be passed between partners during sexual contact. We offer testing for HIV, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, hepatitis b and c, and other common vaginal infections.

Well Woman Exam

This is a recommended regular gynecological exams that include physical screenings, testing, preventative care, and health education. The visit may include a breast exam to check for abnormalities, pelvic exam (including a pap smear to check for infections and precancerous cells), review of family history, and referrals to Primary Care Physician(s) for any abnormal findings (e.g. elevated blood pressure, cholesterol).

Reality Check

Sexual and relational-health education presentations, assemblies, events, small group discussions, and mentoring opportunities that empower youth and young adults to critically navigate sexual decisions, healthy relationships, and the media’s influence. Presentations are also offered to parents of youth and young adults, discussing how parents can create safe relationships with their children to encourage conversations about difficult topics.


Services to help you during your pregnancy or sexual health related concern

Pregnancy Testing

A urine pregnancy test is a reliable method of assessing for pregnancy. The test looks for a hormone called HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). The presence of this hormone typically indicates pregnancy and can be detected in the urine 10 days after fertilization and by blood 8 days after fertilization of the egg and attachment to the uterine wall. Most people schedule a urine pregnancy test around the time of a missed period. A blood test is not routinely performed to diagnose a pregnancy.

Free Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound imaging can be used to detect and confirm a pregnancy. Claris Health offers limited obstetric ultrasound scans. These scans follow national AIUM (American Institute of Ultrasound Medicine) guidelines for limited first trimester ultrasounds and are used for the following medical purposes: 1) Confirmation of intrauterine pregnancy (pregnancy location). 2) Confirmation of cardiac activity (pregnancy viability). 3) Estimation of gestational age of the pregnancy.

Options Education

We are here to help you understand all your options so that you can make an informed decision. It is your pregnancy, your right to know, and your decision. We are committed to providing you with the knowledge and caring support you need to make an informed decision. Our trained patient advocates and clinicians are available to discuss your options and answer questions you have. They will provide you with scientific and evidence-based information regarding all pregnancy and sexual-health options.

Prenatal Care

Prenatal and postpartum care is offered to patients who qualify for our program. We also offer group-based prenatal care, based on the Centering Pregnancy model, to qualifying patients at Claris’ Lynwood clinic facility. This model of prenatal care brings patients out of the exam room and into a group setting, which also helps build a community of support. Groups are typically formed with 4-10 women of different ages, races, and socio-economic backgrounds. Groups begin in their first trimester of pregnancy and include the standard 10 prenatal visits.
