Contraception lets women and couples have the number of children they want, when they want them.

Being able to control if and when you have children is a big part of maintaining your health. So is choosing the right contraceptive method for you.

Only condoms and diaphragms provide protection against both pregnancy and STIs.


Jadelle

Jadelle is a contraceptive implant, used to prevent pregnancy.
Contraceptive implants such as Jadelle are for long term (up to five years) use.
Jadelle prevents pregnancy through a combination of mechanisms. The most important of these are inhibition of the egg release by stopping it maturing and changing the cervical mucus consistency , making it more difficult for sperm to reach the egg. Other mechanisms may also be involved. When Jadelle implants are removed, your fertility will resume.
Jadelle is inserted just beneath the skin on the inside of your upper arm and is performed by your doctor.

Mirena

Mirena is a small, flexible Intrauterine System (IUS) that provides
reliable, long-term contraception for up to five years. Mirena is fully reversible and won’t interfere with any plans for children in the future.

IUCD

A small device that fits inside your womb. You can’t feel it or tell it is there except by checking for the threads.

Your partner should not be able to feel it and you can still use tampons. The removal threads come out of your cervix and curl up inside the top of your vagina – they don’t hang outside.

There are 2 types of IUD. One type contains copper (Copper IUD).
