Contraception

There are many different types of contraception available. 

There are advantages and disadvantages to each type of contraception, so it's important to choose one that best suits your relationship and lifestyle. Your GP will be able to advise you on the different types of contraception.

Condoms are the only form of contraception that can protect you from both unplanned pregnancy and STIs.

Read the NHS Choices Contraception guide.
