During your consultation, your doctor will ask you about your lifestyle, medical history, previous contraceptive use, and if you are currently taking any medication. Based on this information, we will suggest certain forms of contraception, so that you can make the ultimate decision as to which suits you best.
We will be sure to talk you through any risks or symptoms associated with each available choice, the chances of getting pregnant whilst using it, and how to use it.

This may involve further examinations or tests. Rest assured, we will support you in finding the right contraceptive for your unique needs.
