Contraception is used to help prevent an unplanned pregnancy. There are many methods of contraception to choose from and all of the methods are available from clinics in Manchester.

Most people want to use a method of contraception that is safe, reliable, and does not require too much thinking about. There are four methods that fit this description: contraceptive implants, IUDs (intrauterine devices), IUSs (intrauterine systems), and contraceptive injections. These are long-acting methods of contraception (LARC). Other popular methods include the contraceptive pill and the progestogen-only pill.
