Contraception Advice

Contraception can prevent pregnancy when used correctly.

There are many different types of contraception available. Some types of contraception may be more suitable for you than others,  so getting advice about your options is important.

Where can I get advice?

Contraception can be accessed from the following services:

  • Unity Sexual Health services – see here for clinics – not all clinics can offer all types of contraception.
    • If they can’t provide the method that you would like, Unity staff will be able to help you find a service that can and offer you an alternative method in the meantime.
  • Your GP or practice nurse
  • Brook
  • Your School nurse
  • NHS walk-in centres
  • Pharmacies (emergency contraception and condoms only)
    • You can find out your nearest pharmacies that provide emergency contraception by texting:
      • Pharmacy emergency contraception [and your post code]’ to 80011
    • You will get a text with the 3 nearest pharmacies with their names, addresses, telephone numbers and distance.
    • Standard text message rates from your provider may apply when using this service.
