If you need to start or switch contraception methods 56 Dean Street offers a free, confidential service providing the full range of contraceptive methods:
Women attending for IUD/S (coil) appointments should have had a recent sexual health screen (for chlamydia and gonorrhoea) and should not have had unprotected sex (i.e. should be on a method of hormonal contraception or have used condoms) from the time of the last period until the IUD is inserted.
Women should ask for a double appointment for IUD insertions and implant removals.
