There is information about all aspects of contraception, including help to choose what method might suit you best, on the FPA (Family Planning Association) website.
IUD / IUS
This service is not currently offered at 19 Beaumont St. Please see the Oxfordshire Sexual Health services website to find out about their coil fitting service.
Dr Meriel Raine, one of the partners at the Surgery, has produced these short video clips about how the contraceptive ‘coil’ (IUD / IUS) is fitted and removed.
IUD means Intrauterine Device and IUS means Intrauterine System. They are both forms of long-acting reversible contraception, which are very effective because whilst they are being used you do not have to remember or take or use contraception.
