Contraceptive Services at our Clinic in Birmingham

Some of the contraceptive services that we are offering are:

Contraceptive Implants

A 99% form of contraception, lasting up to 3 years. The contraceptive implant is a slow-releasing Progestogen device that is inserted within the upper arm, allowing it to release this hormone directly into your bloodstream. With the implant, there is no need to remember a daily pill.

Contraceptive Pill Prescription

The ‘combined’ pill is the most common contraceptive option for women. Containing both oestrogen and progesterone hormones, this daily tablet is 99% effective in pregnancy prevention. The contraceptive pill works two ways, thickening the lining of the womb’s mucus so sperm cannot reach an egg and thinning the womb’s lining so a fertilised egg cannot implant.

Copper Coil Implant

Effective between 5 and 10 years is the copper coil implant. This contraceptive method is a small T-shaped, intrauterine system (IUD) that is professionally positioned within the uterus. The copper coil offers a non-hormonal option which is still 99% effective in preventing pregnancy. 

Mirena Coil 

The Mirena coil is a T-shaped, intrauterine system (IUS) which must be inserted by a qualified doctor or trained nurse. The ISU is also 99% effective and also works by slowly releasing progesterone. Once inserted, this contraceptive method can last for 5 years.

Depot Contraception Injection

Depot contraception injections offer oestrogen-free contraception. This 99% effective option works by releasing progesterone into the bloodstream over 13 weeks. Speak to your doctor as it is possible for these injections to reduce the symptoms of PMS and painful, heavy periods.

Emergency Contraception

At Midland Health Birmingham, we offer emergency contraception for those that need it. We have three available options, the Levonelle tablet, the ellaOne table and the copper coil. Depending on how long ago you had unprotected intercourse will determine your options. However, our GPs will be available to talk you through your options.

Family Planning Services in Birmingham

Our Family Planning experts can discuss with you the options that you have. With years of experience, you can trust our team will be there for you when you most need an expert opinion. We offer:

Pregnancy Tests

If you are concerned that you have received a false negative reading at home, we are able to carry out more reliable pregnancy tests from the comfort of our Midland Health clinics. If you have missed a period, we can carry out a pregnancy test looking for levels of beta HCG to help determine whether or not you are pregnant. We are also able to offer follow-on appointments to help you understand your next steps.

Discovering you are pregnant unexpectedly can be a very difficult time. Our GPs at Midland Health are always on hand to help you understand your options and what your possible next steps could be.
