As part of our service at bpas we offer contraceptive care and advice and contraception. We can also provide emergency contraception and vasectomy.
Contraceptive use can either be perfect (always consistent and correct) or typical (which usually applies to the average person because it is sometimes difficult to always use contraception correctly). The effectiveness figures used on this page are based on typical use of the contraceptive method.
Please remember that fertility returns almost immediately after an abortion. Almost all methods of contraception can be started on the same day as your treatment which means you will be protected straight away and condoms can be used at any time following an abortion to reduce the risk of pregnancy or infection.
Click on the contraceptive methods listed below for more information on each type of contraception.
The Implant (Nexplanon) 99.9% Effective
No form of contraception is 100% effective and few couples use their contraceptive method perfectly every time they have sex. Emergency contraception is a safe and effective means to prevent pregnancy when something has gone wrong with your usual method of contraception or if you've had unprotected sex.

We produced a guide especially for women who are reviewing their contraception after they become new mothers. Click here to view a copy of 'Your Guide to Contraception after you've had a baby'.
