Government policy introduced free contraception for women aged between 17-30 earlier this year. This is covered on your PPSN and so you may be asked to provide your PPSN for your consultation and again when collecting your contraception from your pharmacy. Note that pharmacies are allowed to issue the morning after pill without the need to see a doctor, so may suit some women better to attend there. We are a myoptions practice, catering for our own registered patients at present

If it is your first time starting contraception, we do encourage you to make an appointment to go through all options with you. Not every option is suitable for each person. The doctor or nurse will ensure that you choose a method that is best suited to your needs. Please advise us that you want to discuss contraception and we will ensure that there is enough time to go through everything. Some of our more common methods are listed below.

IntraUterine Coil Device

We provide coil fitting for women who have had children and those who haven’t. Generally, for fitting of a coil, 3 appointments are required, a pre-fitting visit, to assess and ensure safe and appropriate time to fit the coil, the fitting of the coil itself, and a check up 4-6 weeks afterwards. There are three main coil that we use, Mirena, Kyleena and Jaydess. There is also a newer copper device, Ballerine, which is covered on the free contracpetive scheme.
