I want to have / exchange or remove my coil

We offer appointments to fit, exchange and remove contraceptive coils. This includes the copper coil (IUD) and Mirena/Kyleena coils (IUS).

We are only commissioned to fit coils for contraceptive purposes. For coils for non-contraceptive reasons you can access this from some GPs. Please contact your GP to discuss your coil fit or exchange if it is not for contraception.

I would like a coil fit/exchange

This is usually a two-step process of initial discussion followed by a procedure appointment. The first step would be  a consultation  to discuss your history and check  that this is the right method for you. This consultation can be done over the phone or in clinic. Please read the information on the sexwise website here before attending.
