Contraception

Contraception is free for most people in the UK. With 15 methods to choose from, you’ll find one that suits you. 

Contraceptive methods allow you to choose when and if you want to have a baby, but they don’t protect you from sexually transmitted infections (STIs). 

Condoms help to protect against STIs and pregnancy, so whatever other methods of contraception you’re using to prevent pregnancy, use condoms as well to protect your and your partner’s health.
