Contraceptive consultations

Find contraception that works for you

The right choice of contraception will empower you to be in control of your reproductive health, and to protect yourself against sexually transmitted diseases.

When thinking about the method of contraception that will be the most effective for you and best meet your own personal situation, it is invaluable to have the help of a gynaecologist who understands the wide range of options available and who is sensitive to your needs and concerns.

Factors such as lifestyle, age, medical and family history, menstrual symptoms, sexual activity, and constitution will all come into play, and will have an influence on your choice of contraception. You may be interested in taking hormonal contraception, such as the combined pill or progesterone-only pill, an injection or implantation, the vaginal ring, or a hormonal IUD (many coils now include slow-releasing hormones).

But if hormonal birth control is, for whatever reason, not for you, there are also several non-hormonal options available, such as barrier methods, non-hormonal IUDs, and sterilisation. Different forms of contraception have different levels of effectiveness, and some require more attention and effort than others in order to be effective.

There are advantages and disadvantages to every type of contraception, which is why it’s important to discuss your options with a specialist.

Why should I come in for a contraceptive consultation?

A gynaecologist can give recommendations that are right for your particular needs and lifestyle, and will have a good understanding of the full range of options available. There are pros and cons to all methods, and a specialist can make sure you are making a fully informed choice.

What are the factors to consider when choosing a contraceptive method?

Lifestyle, age, menstrual symptoms, medical and family history, sexual activity, and constitution are all important to consider when choosing a method of contraception.

Many IUDs include slow-releasing hormones, but you can get ones that are hormone-free. Your doctor can discuss the available options with you.
