Family Planning/Contraception

Family Planning/Contraception

There are several different types of contraception available to women in Ireland.

Each type of contraception varies in how effective they are at preventing pregnancy, how much they cost, how easy they are to use, and whether they also protect against sexually transmitted infections (STI).

Using two types of contraceptive methods, such as the birth control pill and condoms, increases protection against both pregnancy and STIs.

We are happy to discuss all contraception options available to you so you can make an informed decision as to which type of contraception will work best for you.
