Contraceptive pills, commonly known as birth control pills, are a medication typically taken in pill form to prevent pregnancy. These pills effectively inhibit conception by suppressing ovulation and altering the uterine and cervical mucus. However, their effectiveness decreases when doses are missed or taken irregularly.
While primarily aimed at preventing pregnancy, certain types of contraceptive pills may also assist in treating acne, regulating menstrual cycles, and reducing menstrual cramps.
It’s important to note that contraceptive pills do not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). For STI protection, it’s recommended to use condoms or other barrier methods.
The contraceptive implant is the most effective method of contraception. It is a rod that sits under the skin on the inside of your upper arm, where it can remain for up to three years, though it can be removed at any time earlier than that. Whilst 80% of women experience no or infrequent bleeding with this method, about 20% can experience more problematic bleeding.
Implant Removal Service Manchester
The contraceptive implant can remain in the arm for up to three years. After this time, it will need to be removed or replaced. Replacements can be positioned in the same place as the previous implant.
Some women may find that they want to have the implant removed before the three years are up. There are various reasons why you may look into this, for example, wanting to get pregnant or simply wanting to change contraceptive methods.
Our private contraceptive implant removal service in Manchester is efficient and safe. You will be given a local anaesthetic before a small cut is made to remove the device. If you aren’t looking to get pregnant after removal, you should consider other options for contraception.
Coil Fitting in Manchester
The coil is a T-shaped device that sits inside the womb to prevent pregnancy. There are two different types of coil, the none hormonal or copper IUD or the hormonal IUS.
This coil works by preventing implantation in the womb and can last for 5-10 years. As it does not contain homes it is great for women who choose not to use, or are intolerant to hormones. It can also be fitted as emergency contraception up to five days after unprotected intercourse. It’s main downfall is that it tends to cause heavy periods.
This coil works by releasing progestogen into the lining of the womb to keep it thin. It also alters vaginal mucous and in some women prevents the release of an egg. There are different brands of hormonal coil in the UK; Mirena, Levosert, Kyleena and Jaydess and can last for 3-10 years. The Mirena is also licensed as the progestogen component of hormone replacement therapy (see Menopause section) and to control heavy menstrual bleeding. Both the Kyleena and Jaydess contain smaller doses of progestogen so may be suitable for women who experience side effects to progestogen.
