Planned Parenthood in California is Awesome

Things I accomplished/acquired at Planned Parenthood Potrero Hill last week during my drop-in appointment, free of charge:

– HPV vaccine (part 1 of 3)
– HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and pregnancy tests
– annual exam
– Pap smear
– 13 packs of birth control pills
– 4 morning after pills

I was seen by friendly, efficient staff who foisted the morning after pills on me even though I told them I didn’t want any and would also have given me reams of condoms if I had asked.

The only drawback was that I had to spend the entire day waiting to be seen.  I showed up at the clinic at 11:45am, was told to come back at 2pm because the morning roster was full, went back at 2pm, waited until 3:30pm to be seen, and left the place at 4:45pm.  This was ok for me because I had time to waste but probably not ok for someone with a job or a life.  In my experience, the 1.5-hour wait at Planned Parenthood is inevitable, even if you have an appointment, but you can easily avoid that extra 2-hour wait by making an appointment beforehand.
