Contraception

We provide a full range of contraceptive services. Most are provided at normal GP surgery appointments. You will be asked to make a special appointment if you wish to have an Implant or an IUCD (coil) fitted. Please note, for the contraceptive pill you must make an appointment to see the Practice Nurse.

Post coital contraception (the morning after pill) is also available. It is important that you take this as soon as possible after unprotected sexual intercourse, but it can be taken up to 72 hours after. It is more effective the sooner it is taken. If you need this, please go to any pharmacy and request to speak to the pharmacist who can supply you with this free of charge providing you are over the age of 13 and are registered with a GP in Scotland.
