An unintended pregnancy can make you think again about contraception, particularly if it happened because you weren’t using contraception every time, your condom failed or you forgot to take your pill. If you aren’t sure you are using contraception as effectively as you could be, you might want to ask for contraception advice when you visit the private abortion clinic in London.
Finding Contraception That Suits You
If you have had problems with your current contraception, you might want to consider switching. Your doctor at the private abortion clinic in London can help you to decide which one will work best for you in the future. For example, if you find it difficult to pause to fit a condom, you might want to try using a diaphragm instead as it can be fitted some time before you start having sex. Another option might be a hormonal contraceptive, such as the pill. However, if you’ve already been using the pill and you’ve found it difficult to take it at the same time every day, there are some more convenient options.
Contraceptive Coils and Implants
You might want to consider having a coil or implant fitted. These tiny devices prevent pregnancy using the same kinds of hormones that are found in the contraceptive pill, but there is no need to remember to take them every day. Once the coil or implant is in place, you will be protected for several years. A coil or IUD can last for up to five years, while an implant can keep working for three years.
If you are having a surgical termination at the private abortion clinic in London, you can have a coil or implant inserted at the same time, so that you are protected right away. Your fertility will return to normal right after an abortion, so you will need to start using contraception as soon as you are having sex again.
