Contraception

There is a range of contraceptive types to choose from in Aotearoa. Using contraception is the best way to prevent pregnancy. At Well Women and Family, our specialist nurse will guide you through your different options.

What do we offer?

Long-acting reversible contraception (LARCs) are the most effective type of contraception. LARCs are more than 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. To inquire about LARC insertion or removal, please call our clinic at 0800 856 788.
 

There are two types of LARC: 

  1. The intra uterine device (IUD) — which lasts up to three, five, or ten years. This includes a hormonal option (Mirena, Jaydess) or a copper version.

  2. The implant (Jadelle) — which lasts up to five years
     

Some people call LARCs ‘fit and forget’ contraception.  
 

Do you offer the birth control pill or depo injection?

At Well Women and Family Trust, we do not offer the birth control pill, Depo-Provera injection, or emergency contraceptive pill. It is best to see your GP or Family Doctor.
