SHAW is a free and confidential workshop.
A well woman exam includes:
Everyone is welcome to attend the workshop. We strongly encourage you to bring a friend, your partner, etc.
The workshop is not required; however, it is strongly recommended for women who have never used hormonal contraceptives, such as birth control pills, the NuvaRing, or Depo Provera. The workshop is also recommended for women who have never had a well woman exam. The knowledge you gain from this workshop will help you with your family planning decisions and having a healthy sex life.
After you have completed the workshop, you will have a gynecological exam/Pap test with a female clinician. At this time, your clinician will give you a prescription to fill at our pharmacy.
If you have had a well woman visit in the last year, you do not need another exam. To get your prescription, make an appointment at the front desk after attending the workshop.
If you cannot attend the regularly scheduled times that we offer, we will attempt to provide you with an individual session at a more convenient time. Call the Health Resource Center for more information (562) 985-4609 and to schedule your appointment. Learn more about sexual health.
