Contraception

All methods of contraception are effective. No method is 100% reliable. The reliability of each method will be discussed with you and the type of contraception that suits you best will be discussed with you. All of your questions will be answered at this time.

Where no contraception is used 70 – 80% of sexually active women become pregnant within one year.

Methods of contraception include the following:

1. Combined Oral Contraceptive (The Pill)

2. Progesterone Only Contraception (Mini Pill)

3. Contraceptive Injections (e.g. Depo Provera)

4. Barrier Methods (Condoms, Diaphragms, Intrauterine Devices (the IUCD or coil)

5. Hormone Releasing Systems (Mirena)

6. Natural Rhythm Methods

7. Sterilisation. This includes laparoscopic female sterilisation, Essure and Vasectomy

8. Emergency Contraception

Every method of contraception will have issues for yourself relating to advantages, disadvantages and potential side effects. A contraceptive that suits your needs, which is comfortable for you and relatively free of side effects is our goal in establishing appropriate contraceptive advice tailored to yourself. We will endeavour to answer all your questions regarding the currently available contraceptive methods and alert you to any potential complications or contraindications that might arise.
