Longer-Acting Contraception (coils, sub-dermal implant)

Some contraceptive devices last 3 years are more and involve a procedure to insert these either into the arm (sub-dermal implant) or the womb (a coil). The current sub-dermal implant is called the Implanon or is commonly referred to as ‘the bar’. Coils include Copper coils, Mirena, Jaydess and Kyleena.

The cost varies according to the device inserted and can be found under our current price list. We also offer appointments for the removal of all these devices.
