Timing of Coils, Implants and Injections:
Coil or implant insertion - it is important that you are not pregnant when you attend. Please ensure you are using reliable contraception or abstaining from sex after your last period.
Coil removal or coil change please do not have unprotected sex in the week prior to removal or change.
Coil or Implant beyond removal date - assume it will not work and use other contraception and book an appointment with a GP or nurse practitioner to discuss future options. If you know that you wish to have another coil or implant sited then you can book directly into the next contraception clinic in Church Surgery or with the local family planning clinic.
Injections need to be given every 13 weeks, they can be given early if needed.
