Our Contraception Services
Whether you're exploring contraception options, require a contraceptive replacement, or are seeking expert guidance, our team of dedicated consultants offers on-demand contraception management services. These include:
Contraceptive coils: a highly effective and long-lasting form of contraception. Our experienced consultants provide coil insertion and removal as a one-stop service and will guide you through the process, addressing any concerns and ensuring you make an informed decision that aligns with your lifestyle.
Oral contraceptives: are one of the most common forms of contraception used in the UK and are considered highly effective. It can also make periods lighter and less painful and in some cases, help with premenstrual symptoms. Our team will discuss the available options, helping you choose the right one for you. We prioritise your comfort and well-being, ensuring you have accurate information to make confident choices.
Non-hormonal contraception methods
Barrier methods: While condoms are widely recognized, additional barrier methods like caps, diaphragms, and the female condom exist. These methods offer a level of protection against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including serious conditions like hepatitis and HIV. However, a significant drawback for many is that these barriers must be used at the time of intercourse, and if not employed correctly, they may have a higher failure rate compared to other contraception methods.
Intrauterine devices (IUDs): Non-hormonal IUDs, such as the copper IUD, are small, T-shaped devices that are inserted into the uterus. The copper acts as a spermicide, preventing fertilisation. Copper IUDs provide long-term contraception and can last for up to 10 years.
For those considering permanent contraception, our vasectomy services provide a safe and effective option for those who have completed their family or have decided not to have children. Our leading urologists offer permanent male contraception in the form of painless, no-scalpel vasectomy and also perform vasectomy reversal procedures (vasovasostomy) to restore fertility if required. Our specialists offer expert advice, ensuring you have a clear understanding of the procedure and its implications.
