Contraception

There are many forms of contraception that we offer in surgery:

· Depo injection - depo-provera is one of the most common contraceptives in the UK and lasts for 13 weeks. It is 99% affective if used properly. It is very useful for women who struggle to take the pill at the same time every day.

· The pill - the pill is a combined pill which is over 99% affective at preventing pregnancy if taken correctly.

· Emergency Contraception - emergency contraception is also known as the morning after pill. It can be taken up to 5 days after unprotected sex.

· Implant - Contraceptive implants work in a similar way to the pill. The implant is inserted under the skin of the upper arm and can stay there for up to three years after which it stops being affective and needs to be removed.

· Free condoms - we offer free condoms in surgery, if you want to speak to someone in private about this, please speak to reception.

· Coil - This is a small t-shaped plastic and copper device that is placed in the womb by a Doctor or Nurse. When inserted correctly it is 99% affective at preventing pregnancy. It lasts 5 to 10 years.

If you would like to discuss starting contraception speak to one of our Care Navigators on 01302 342832.

Just a reminder all of this is strictly confidential, so no information will be disclosed to parents.

Alcohol Abuse

Research has shown that the average age for a teenager to start drinking alcohol is 13. (Drink aware) Alcohol has a damaging affect on the development of the brain and the body. It also leaves young people vulnerable to dangerous situations.

It is understandable that teenagers can also be peer pressured into drinking alcohol. Drinking alcohol can lead to unprotected sex, causing pregnancy and STI’s.

Teenagers may also drink alcohol due to the fact they may be worried, anxious, or feeling low.

If you are worried or concerned about the amount of alcohol you may be consuming please contact reception on 01302 342832. As we have previously mentioned, this would remain strictly confidential. Click here for more online information.

Want to quit Smoking?

Smoking causes significant damage to you body, as well as to other people around you. Smoking is also an expense to your bank account, 1 packet of cigarettes may not been a lot but over 12 months it can add up to over £1000. As soon as you stop smoking you will feel the health benefits from 20 minutes after stopping. After 10 years of not smoking your risk of having a heart attack will decrease to that of a non smoker.

 

If you want to quit smoking but are struggling there is a Free Smoke Free Service in Doncaster.
