• Combined oral contraceptive – “The pill”
• Progesterone only – “The minipill”
• Long-acting progesterone injection
• Implanon – “The rod”
• Progesterone IUD - Mirena or Kyleena
• Copper IUD
There are many circumstances where one particular option is most appropriate and some situations where particular contraceptives should be avoided. Book an appointment to find out the options which might best suit you in your current circumstances.
