Checking in your phone book would be a good first step- try looking under "public health" or "family planning." Another possiblity is to call a regular local doctor's office, they'll sometimes be able to refer you to where public or family planning clinics are available in your area.
If you cannot find a public clinic closer to your location, you can also call ask your local doctor about the services they offer, including payment options if you do not want to use parents' insurance or are uninsured, and confidentiality practices.
