Condoms are the only form of contraception that protect you from sexually transmitted infections! However, they are only around 80% effective at preventing pregnancy, so we recommend using them alongside another more reliable form of contraception.   


There are two main types of the contraceptive pill, the combined pill ‘the pill’ which contains oestrogen and progesterone and the progesterone-only pill the 'mini pill' which contains just progesterone.

The Patch

The patch is similar to the 'pill' but instead of taking a pill every day, your body receives the hormones through the skin.

The Vaginal Ring

The ring again works very similarly to the combined pill but the hormones are delivered into the bloodstream through the vaginal wall.

The Coil

There are two types of coil: the Copper coil the IUD and hormone releasing coil the IUS.

The Implant

The implant is a very small flexible rod that sits under the skin and releases the hormone progesterone.

The Injection

An injection is given every 13 weeks that contains progesterone.


Vasectomy is permanently cutting the tube that carries sperm from the testicles.
