Contraception

Our doctors and nurses are able to discuss all contraceptive methods with patients. This includes pills (both combined and progesterone only), patches, vaginal rings, coils (both hormonal and non hormonal), injections and implants. Dr Dresler and Dr Vincent fit coils. Dr Dresler and Dr Matloob fit implants and Dr Dresler removes implants.

If you need emergency contraception (the morning after pill) then you don’t necessarily have to make an appointment. You can request this by filling in a form at the reception desk. If you have any queries then you may request a doctor to telephone you.

There are two types of morning after pill – one is effective up to 72 hours after you have had unprotected intercourse, other other up to 5 days. Both are FAR more effective the sooner you take them.
