Need Long Term Contraception?

When you need contraception advice, it’s important to speak with a GP who can help you understand your options and choose the method that is best for you. When choosing a long-term contraceptive method, it’s important to consider your individual needs and preferences, as well as any potential side effects. It’s also important to schedule regular check-ups with a GP to evaluate your contraceptive needs and make sure you are using your chosen method correctly and effectively.

Long-term contraception refers to methods of birth control that can provide protection for an extended period of time, typically several years. Example: Bar (Implanon), Depot needles,Intra Uterine Devices (IUDs).

It’s important to keep in mind that long-term contraception methods do not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), it’s important to use a secondary method such as condoms to protect against STIs. Get your GP to organize regular checks if you are at risk.

Implanon Insertion and removal

The contraceptive implant is a small, flexible rod about the size of a match stick. The implant is put under the skin of the upper arm. It can stay there for up to 3 years. The implant slowly releases a progestogen hormone called etonogestrel into the blood stream. This can prevent pregnancy for up to 3 years.

Depot contraception

The contraceptive injection is a hormone injection that prevents pregnancy. The injection works for 12 weeks. The injection contains depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA). DMPA is a hormone similar to progesterone. Progesterone is made naturally in the body by the ovaries.
