Gynopedia is an open resource wiki for sexual, reproductive, and women's health care across the globe.

Our mission is to provide practical, stigma-free information so that users can feel empowered and make informed decisions. The basic idea is that you search for a city -- for example, New York City or Seoul -- and Gynopedia provides free information on birth control, the morning after pill, STI tests, menstrual products, gynecologists, obstetricians, prenatal care, abortion access, crisis support, and more in that city. So, let’s say you need a low-cost clinic in New York, or an LGBTQ-friendly gynecologist in Bangkok, or the morning after pill in Lima. Well, Gynopedia is the resource for you.

How do we get all this information? Contributions from real people, along with research and community outreach. So, we would love if you can contribute your knowledge! You don't need to create an account to contribute. Simply search for a city, click "Edit," and add information. Let us know which pharmacies, clinics, or gynecologists worked out for you. Let us know local taboos or social customs to consider. Think about what you would tell a friend -- that's what you should add! To help you get started, here's an instructional video, and you can view all our pages via the Gynopedia Index.
