Contraception/ Family Planning

We offer advice on all types of contraception. The “morning after” pill can be taken up to 72 hours after unprotected intercourse, but is much more effective in the first 24 hours.  We can refer you to other teams who can carry out vasectomies.

We provide contraceptive advice including the use of long acting methods like the coil, contraceptive injection and implant.

 

Family Planning

All forms of contraception (including EMERGENCY contraception) can be provided by the doctors and practice nurses who have been fully trained by the Family Planning Association. If necessary, ask for an emergency appointment.

Preparing to have an Intrauterine Device (Coil) fitted

We are keen to make your clinic visit as straightforward and streamlined as possible.

We will try to insert an IUD / IUS (coil) for you at one of our family planning clinics therefore it is important that you have read all the information and are suitable for the procedure on the day you come. You can also discuss other methods and ask any questions during a telephone appointment which will be arranged.

We strongly recommend that you watch the short film below, as it gives you all the information you need about intrauterine methods.
