Posted by: philheiden - Posted on:

From May 2021 we will be reinstating our in house LARC clinics, fitting and/or removing contraceptive coils and implants for our registered patients.  

These contraceptive methods are very effective with a 99+% rate of protection and can last 3 to 10 years, depending on the type of device fitted. Other benefits include, LARC devices can stop your periods altogether, you do not need to remember to take daily pills and it cuts down the amount of contacts with your GP Practice and inconvenient trips to the Chemists to collect your prescriptions over the years.

For more information as to the wide range of contraception on offer and what’s best for you please review https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/contraception/

Still keen on having a contraceptive coil or implant? Contact us today and ask to be put on the waiting list. We usually can offer an appointment within 4-8 weeks.

If you have a LARC device fitted already please ensure that you contact us 3 months before the device is due to expire

  • Mirena coil – 5 years
  • T-Safe coil – 5 to 10 years

Be proactive, be prepared, stay safe!
