The doctor or nurse will be happy to help you decide which method would suit you best. In you are unable to attend one of our clinics, most GP practices offer contraceptive advice and many fit coils and implants so please contact your GP directly to check.
Emergency contraception. We also offer free emergency contraception in our clinics. But most GP practices and some pharmacies also offer this service for FREE.
