Home » Contraception
Contraception clinics are provided at Wilberforce Health Centre in Hull City Centre and at other sites in Hull & East Riding.
All clinics offer all methods of contraception or can advise and direct you to another clinic for some of the methods. Options include the combined pill, the patch, the ring, the mini pill (progestogen only pill) condoms and diaphragms and the long acting reversible methods (LARC). These methods are much more effective than the pill or condoms and provide worry free contraception. The injection (depo-provera) lasts for 12 weeks, the rod (inplanon) lasts for 3 years, the coil (IUD) lasts for 5 -10 years and hormone coil (IUS) lasts for 5 years. For more information on LARCS click here. If you would like an appointment to get LARC, please download the self referral form here and send it to the address at the top of the form. A nurse will then contact you to discuss the best method for you.
Contraception clinics also offer emergency contraception, pregnancy testing, advice and referral for termination of pregnancy, cervical smear tests for the over 25's (please bring your letter) and chlamydia testing for the under 25's.
In addition there are 3 integrated Contraception and Sexual Health clinics at Goole Health Centre on Tuesdays 3.30pm – 6.30pm and Fridays 9.30am - 11.30am and also at Conifer on Saturdays 12.30pm – 3.30pm.
