Physical Exams

Comprehensive and Confidential

Physical exams are an important part of Family Planning. They let your health care provider determine whether you may receive a prescription for certain methods of birth control, or help you prepare for a healthy pregnancy. At THD, we also see the comprehensive exams as an opportunity to screen for diseases and help educate about healthy choices. The exams include, for women, a Pap smear and clinical breast exam. They also include testing for such conditions as diabetes or anemia. You may also be asked if your family has a history of certain medical conditions.

Family-planning physical exams are provided by women’s health nurse practitioners or family nurse practitioners. Our staff is ready to help and listen in both English and Spanish. Like all of our family planning services, the exams and outcomes are confidential.

Family planning physical exams are provided to women (13 and older) and men on a sliding scale fee-for-service at the following THD locations. Please call for an appointment.

WIC

Supplemental Nutrition for Women, Infants and Children

WIC is a supplemental nutrition program that serves to safeguard the health of income-eligible women, infants and children up to age five who are at nutritional risk. More than 7.5 million people benefit from WIC each month.

Services include: Nutrition education for families, referrals to various social service agencies, and issuance of food instruments which can be used at various grocery stores for health foods such as milk, cheese, eggs, fruits, vegetables, beans, peanut butter, infant foods and formula, juice and cereal.  

Eligibility requirements

  • Women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or have recently given birth 
  • Infants 
  • Children up to the age of five

How to qualify

  • Live in the state of Oklahoma 
  • Have a family income within program limits  
  • If you receive Medicaid, SNAP or TANF, you are automatically eligible for WIC benefits. 

The Breastfeeding Peer Counselor Grant is a part of the WIC Program. The Tulsa Health Department’s WIC program is unique in that we have one of the only WIC Peer Counselor programs in Oklahoma. The Peer Coordinators and Counselors provide education and support to pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as issuing breast pumps when needed. They are allowed to “wear their babies” to work and demonstrate the importance of breastfeeding. We have a policy specifically for the Breastfeeding Peer Counselor grant concerning bringing their babies to work.  

As part of the Peer Breastfeeding program:

Breastfeeding promotion is an integral part of the WIC program.  Its goal is to promote and support breastfeeding statewide.

  • 

Mothers who breastfeed are eligible to receive WIC benefits longer than non-breastfeeding mothers.
  • 
Mothers who exclusively breastfeed their infants will receive an enhanced food package.
  • 
Mothers who breastfeed may be eligible to receive breast pumps to help support their breastfeeding.
  • 
Mothers who breastfeed may receive follow-up support through breastfeeding peer counselors where available.

Who is eligible?

  • Pregnant women (and up to six weeks after pregnancy)
  • Breastfeeding women (up to 1st birthday)
  • Nonbreastfeeding postpartum women (up to six months after pregnancy)
  • Infants (up to 1st birthday)
  • Children (up to 5th birthday)

Applicants must live in the state in which they apply and meet income guidelines.

WIC is a program of the Food and Nutrition Service, a Federal agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It is not an entitlement program, but rather a Federal grant program for which Congress authorizes a specific amount of funds annually.
