We offer a range of contraception & family planning services including:
IUD/Coil fitting & removal
If you would like advice on contraception or require any of the above services please make an appointment with one of our female doctors.
'Morning After' Pill or coil (IUD)
The post-coital pill has to be given within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse (the earlier the better) as the sooner you take emergency contraception after unprotected sexual intercourse the more effective it is:
• Within first 24 hours..........95% effective
• Within 48 hours.................85% effective
• Within 72 hours.................58% effective
Emergency contraception pills can be prescribed by our doctors as well as local certified pharmacists and the Family Planning Clinic who have regular clinics.
If you have left it more than 72 hours, you can still have a coil (IUD) fitted up to five days after unprotected sexual intercourse. Make an appointment with Dr Jonna or the local Family Planning Clinic, as soon as possible.
It is important to see a health professional for family planning advice as soon as possible after taking emergency contraception to arrange a method of regular contraception.
*IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PERIOD WITHIN 2 TO 3 WEEKS AFTER TAKING EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION YOU MUST SEE A HEALTH PROFESSIONAL (DOCTOR OR NURSE) AS YOU MAY BE PREGNANT.
