How do I get contraception?

If you wish to start a new form of contraception for the first time please make an appointment with a Doctor or nurse to discuss options.

If you need emergency contraception please contact us as soon as possible.  It is important that if you take the morning after pill you take it within 72 hours of intercourse, preferably 24 hours.  If you require this please tell the reception team so that they can arrange for you to see a nurse or for a doctor to contact you as soon as possible.



How do I get a repeat prescription of my contraception?

If you are established on any form of the pill or the injection, then you can arrange a pill check or an injection with one of the nurses. For most women using oral contraception we will need to see you every 6 months for your pill check.   You will need to book a nurse appointment for your pill check.


What do I do if I would like an IUCD (coil)?

Dr Kristina Irwin fits coils here at the surgery.

If you would like to have a coil fitted please call the surgery to speak a doctor or nurse who can arrange your appointment.
The pros and cons of coils will be explained to you.
You may be required to have swabs taken to make sure there is no infection present (this is a bit like having a smear).
The appointment will be 30-minutes with Dr Irwin and a health care assistant.
 
 
What do I do if I would like a contraceptive implant?
 
Dr Kristina Irwin and Dr Hannah Walch fit implants here at the surgery.
 
If you would like an implant fitting please call the surgery to speak to a doctor or nurse who can arrange your appointment.
The pros and cons will be explained to you.
The appointment will take about 20 minutes with a doctor and a health care assistant.
