Contraception means prevention of pregnancy.

There are a number of different methods and it is important to choose one that best meets your needs and circumstances.

Considerations when choosing contraception should include accurate information about:

  • effectiveness in pregnancy prevention
  • health issues which may limit some choices
  • ease of use
  • side effects including changes to usual periods
  • benefits other than contraception
  • cost and availability
  • reversibility
  • protection against sexually transmissible infections (STIs).
