Instant STI test
Copper Coil Insertion
Mirena Coil Insertion
Whether you are deciding to start a family or life has other plans, one of the most important conversations you'll have is with your GP. At Midland Health, you can talk through options with an experienced professional doctor and take the time to find what works best for you. We have a medical centre in Birmingham you can visit our clinic to have a discussion in a safe space without the fear of being judged.
Some of the contraceptive services that we are offering are:
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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:
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. Without judgement or bias, we can help you with professional and experienced medical advice if you are considering a termination.
If you need to talk to experienced GPs, our friendly doctors can put your mind at ease. Regardless of your concerns, we can offer the advice that you need and further recommendations.
