LGBTQIA Health and Wellness
The Allentown Women's Center understands that lesbian, bisexual, and queer women, as well as trans* and intersex persons too often experience unique barriers when it comes to receiving reproductive health care. At AWC, we embrace a holistic approach to health and wellness, and strongly believe that education and support are vital to a person's ability to make health care decisions. AWC is pleased to offer culturally-sensitive, safe and affordable gynecological services to all LGBTQIA individuals.
AWC currently offers annual physical exams including lower and pelvic exams, HPV testing, chest exams, ultrasounds, STI screenings, and lab work as needed. In addition, we provide prescriptions to gender variant patients interested in menstrual suppression and hormone therapy. Please be advised that our physician requires a letter from a counselor stating that patients have completed the required counseling to educate and prepare them for the physiological changes that will occur during hormone therapy. For a referral to a qualified counselor, call AWC!
To schedule an appointment for services or for additional information on the program and other trans* health resources available to the community, please contact us by phone at (484) 821-0821. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you!
