Also known as the “morning after pill".
The emergency hormonal contraceptive pill Levonelle 1500 can be taken up to 72 hours after unprotected sex. Ellaone can be taken up to 120 hours after unprotected sex. Emergency contraceptive works by delaying ovulation so the female egg is released later and therefore is much less likely to be fertilised by the sperm. Although Levonelle 1500 can be taken up to 72 hours after sex, it is most effective when taken within 12 hours after sex.
Nexplanon or the implant as its most commonly known, is a flexible tube around 4cm long which is inserted into the upper arm, just under the skin. Nexplanon works by releasing etonogestrel, a hormone similar to progesterone which prevents an egg from being released each month. The contraception also thickens the cervical mucus, making it difficult for sperm to enter the womb. Nexplanon can provide effective contraception for a maximum of three years.
Contraception is also available as an injection. The Depo-Provera injection and Sayana Press contains the hormone medroxyprogesterone, which has a similar effect to the hormone progesterone. The Depo-Provera injection works by slowly releasing medroxyprogesterone into the body to prevent ovulation from occurring. For the injection to be effective, it must be administered every 12 weeks.
Some people choose an IUC because of the length of stay of the coil. At MUMS we offer the copper coil and the hormone coil e.g. the Mirena, which releases progesterone. The copper coil can stay in place for 5-10 years. The Hormonal coils can stay in place for 3-6 years.
Dr Jaffer will be able to go through the coil benefits and risks and also discuss the insertion procedure with you.
The actual device copper/hormonal ( coil ) chosen – varies in cost – At MUMS we offer a range of copper and hormonal devices which cost between £60.00 and £150.00.
