What is contraception?

Contraception, the intentional prevention of pregnancy, empowers patients to make informed choices about family planning. Our commitment at HelloGP is to provide comprehensive an informative support in navigating the diverse landscape of contraception, ensuring that each individual can access the most suitable and effective option for their unique needs.

Contraception comes in various forms, ranging from oral contraceptives and contraceptive injections to intrauterine devices (IUDs) and barrier methods. The significance of contraception lies not only in preventing unwanted pregnancies but also in giving individuals the autonomy to plan their families and futures. Whether you are seeking short-term solutions or exploring long-term methods, our team is here to help you make an informed decision that aligns with your health, lifestyle, and reproductive goals. We believe in empowering you with knowledge and choice, ensuring that your contraception experience is personalised, effective, and supportive.
