Family planning contraception

We are able to offer advice on all forms of contraception and would be happy to discuss these with you.

At ObGyn Matters we are happy to assist you with all your contraceptive needs as some women may wish to seek specialist help in finding the right contraception for them.

You will be given a thirty minute appointment with one of our consultant specialists to discuss all your concerns and also to help choose the right, individual method for you.

Methods of contraception

  • Diaphragm or cap
  • Female condoms
  • Implant (Implanon)
  • Injection
  • IUD (coil)
  • Hormone coil (Mirena)
  • Male condoms
  • Natural family planning (Lady Comp)
  • Patch
  • Progestogen-only pill
  • Vaginal ring
  • Female sterilisation
  • Emergency contraception (Most form of contraception are widely available at family planning clinics around the UK)

Some women will seek specialist help in having an Intra-Uterine Contraceptive Device (IUD or IUCD) fitted, as they are more comfortable that this will be performed correctly and with the minimum amount of discomfort when it is performed by a Consultant gynaecologist

We specialise in this at ObGynMatters.

Your choice of coil can usually be fitted at your initial appointment. If you do wish this to be done then simply let us know before you come and take two Ibuprofen and Paracetamol an hour beforehand. This makes it all much easier.

Some women also seek specialist help with implant insertion (Implanon). We are also very pleased to be able to offer this service.
