Contraception Options

Choosing the right contraception for you is a personal choice – but you get advice and further information by contacting your nearest clinic or using our online triage. There are a wide range of contraceptive options available. Effective contraceptives include ‘long acting reversible methods’ (LARCs, e.g. coils), the implant, and Depo injection. Other methods, such as condoms, also reduce the risk of STI transmission.

REMEMBER: Condoms are the only contraception method to reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Condoms can protect you from STIs such as syphilis and gonorrhoea, both of which have increased in the last few years.

We have supported these pages with videos from Sexwise and The Brook Charity. You can also visit the Contraception Choices website which provides honest information to help you weigh up the pros and cons of the many types of contraception available.
