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.
Please call 01904 721111 or see Clinics and Services for our Young Person's Queue & Wait times.
You will need to ensure you are not pregnant by using a reliable method of contraception prior to a coil fit.
You need to abstain from sex or use condoms 7 days before the coil exchange.You will need to use a reliable form of contraception if your coil has already expired.
