We ask that you don't pass urine for 2 hours prior to your
appointment so that any tests you may have give the most accurate
If you would like to have the contraceptive injection or the
contraceptive implant fitted, we will ask you when your last period
was and when you last had sex. We may not be able to give you
either of these methods if you have had sex without using a condom
in the 3 weeks prior to your attendance.
We will also assess your risk of pregnancy if you would like to
have a contraceptive coil either fitted or removed.
If you are a new patient, we may complete you registration
details over the phone when you book your appointment or we
may ask you to complete the form in clinic.
'I cannot commend the clinic enough. It is marvellous we
have this service at all and well done to you all.'
