Contraception And Sexual Health 

contraceptive_pillAdvice on all methods of contraception and sexual health is available at the surgery.  This is provided by the doctors and Practice Nurses within normal surgery times. We cover all aspects of contraception and sexual health including 'pill' initiation and annual 'pill' checks, injections, IUDs and implants, as well as screening for possible sexually transmitted infections.

For repeat prescriptions of the oral contraceptive pill please ask Reception to make an appointment with a Practice Nurse.

Intra-uterine contraceptive devices (coils) are fitted by Dr Frost.  Nexplanon contraceptive implants can be fitted by Nurse Jean Wilson. You will need an initial appointment with Nurse Jean Wilson to discuss these methods and arrange an appointment for the actual fitting. 

We provide a confidential family planning service to all our patients including those under 16 years of age.

If you have concerns about any aspect of sexual health or need information, whatever your age, our practice nurse, Jean Wilson, is available Wednesday's and Thursday's.

Emergency Contraception ("morning after" pill or emergency IUD)

If you require this service please request a same-day/urgent appointment with a Practice Nurse or GP. 

Superdrug, Well Pharmacy (Maude Street Pharmacy) and Rowlands Chemist supply the emergency contraceptive pill free of charge, although this is not as effective as having an emergency IUD fitted.

Intrauterine Contraception

Intrauterine contraception, in the form of the IUD or Mirena®, is as effective as a woman being sterilised but also easily reversible.  There is some excellent information on this form of contraception provided by Lothian Sexual Health Services which can be accessed here.  We would particularly recommend watching the 10 minute video presentation if you are considering the IUD or Mirena® as your form of contraception.
