What is Contraception?

Contraception, or birth control, involves the prevention of unintended pregnancies. Our clinics offer a comprehensive range of contraceptive methods to cater to different needs. These include the combined oral contraceptive pill (COCP), the hormonal patch, the contraception injection, intrauterine devices (IUD insertion and removal) and the hormonal implant (insertion and removal).

What you should know

Contraception is a very common reason for women to consult their doctors, and in most cases, there are no problems. However, in a small number of cases, when problems do arise, patients can suffer harm.


Births resulting from unintended pregnancies can have negative consequences including birth defects and low birth weight. Children from unintended pregnancies are more likely to experience poor mental and physical health during childhood and have lower educational attainment and more behavioural issues in their teen years.


Choosing the best birth control method depends on your needs and the consultation with your doctor will deal with the duration of birth control you require, the side effects of the various contraception methods and will be individualized accordingly.
