Contraceptive Assistance for Women

Doctors at this clinic have had specialist training in long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs).

LARCs are ‘fit and forget’ methods of contraception which provide contraception for up to 5 years. Though they are long acting, fertility returns within days of their removal. Removal of these devices is possible at any time after insertion should the desire to try for a pregnancy arise.

Two different LARCs can be fitted at this clinic: the Mirena intrauterine system (‘coil’) and the Implanon NXT subdermal implant.

These LARCs are regarded as ‘top-tier’ contraceptive methods by the World Health Organisation (WHO) because they are more than 99% effective in preventing unwanted pregnancies. By contrast, the combined oral contraceptive pill (‘the pill’) is only 91% effective in typical use.
