Plan First

Alabama's Plan First Program is a family planning program for women ages 19 to 55.  Family planning can help you and your family to have a better life.

Plan First provides:

  • a yearly family planning exam
  • care support from a social worker or nurse
  • some types of birth control, such as birth control pills and Depo-Provera shots
  • tubal ligation (tube tying) for women 21 years or older
  • lab work, such as testing for pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases
  • help in planning when to have a baby

To be eligible for Plan First, you must meet all of the following requirements:

  • live in Alabama
  • be a United States citizen or be in this country legally
  • be a woman between the ages of 19 and 55
