Contraception Services at Three Spires Medical Practice

You can book to see your own GP or one of our female doctors if you prefer, to discuss your contraception needs. We provide the whole range of contraceptive services. This includes long acting methods of contraception such as the contraceptive implant, intra uterine devices (otherwise known as coils) and depot injections. Your GP can give you all the information you will need to help you make an informed decision. There are some links below to some helpful web based resources which will give you further details of your different options.

Well Woman Clinic

We run a weekly well woman clinic where Dr Linda Barry and Dr Cath Newton can fit implants and coils. One of our nurses, Linda Carey also fits implants on a Wednesday. You can book in directly if you wish but it is best to discuss this with a GP before. For example before we fit a coil, we advise that patients have some routine swabs and this would be discussed before you come to the clinic.

Emergency contraception

- also known as the morning after pill

If you think you may need emergency contraception, it is important that you book in to see us urgently. The sooner you take the EC, the more effective it will be. Just ask the receptionists for an emergency appointment for emergency contraception and we will always make sure you are seen that day.

Useful EC facts- it is free when prescribed by the GP; it can be effective for up to 72 hours after the episode of unprotected sexual intercourse (if more than 72 hours has passed, it is still worth coming to see us as there are other options for up to 5 days) and the EC can be bought at the Chemist after a brief consultation with the pharmacist.
