Contraception can also be called 'birth control' and if used correctly can prevent pregnancy.

 Contraception (including condoms) is free from your GP or from one of the service providers.

 Women require contraception until the menopause. 

 There is a wide range of options, the doctor or nurse at Sandyford will be happy to help you decide which method would suit you best.

 Both male and female condoms are also freely available from the Free Condoms Service. They can also be bought over the counter in chemists, shops, petrol stations and sometimes from vending machines.
