What happens if I want contraception?

What happens if I want contraception?

Whether you are wanting to start contraception for the first time, need emergency contraception, or just want to continue a method you have been using for years, we can provide this for free in all our clinics.

We may ask you further questions about your general health and wellbeing, and measure your blood pressure, weight and height, so we can ensure that we offer you the most appropriate methods of contraception.

We can explain and advise on all methods that might be available to you so that you can make the best choice, and answer any questions you may have.

For some methods of contraception, like the implant and coils, you will usually need to return to the clinic to have them fitted. However, we can offer another method to prevent pregnancy in the meantime.

If you are already pregnant we can offer advice and support about your next steps, including if you are not sure if you would like to continue with the pregnancy.
