In Brazil, condoms and oral contraceptives (birth control pills) are legal and no prescription is required. Other contraceptive options are available at pharmacies or clinics. You can buy emergency contraceptives at pharmacies and there are no age restrictions. Menstrual pads and tampons (mostly without applicators) can be found, and select local businesses carry menstrual cups. Nearly all major hospitals and clinics offer STD/STI test -- and, if you are a legal citizen or resident, you can get these tests done free of charge. You can access most medication in Brazil, and there have been some trials for PrEP. However, it is not clear if PrEP or PEP are universally available.

Regarding gynecologists, there are some well-renowned, international hospitals as well as cheaper, though more inefficient, public ones. Keep in mind that abortion is not legal in Brazil except for some extremely specific cases. So, it is advised to seek out abortions in other countries in the Americas, such as Uruguay, Mexico, the USA, the or Cuba, if at all possible. If this is not an option, you may be able to access the abortion pill in Brazil (see "Abortion" section for details). Check out the [[Rio de Janeiro]] page for details on local city resources.
