There are 15 methods of contraception (preventing pregnancy) available in the UK. 

Some methods rely on you remembering to take or use them, such as  the contraceptive pill or condoms.  Others have no user failure and are more permanent such as the contraceptive injection or IUD.

Condoms are the only method to protect against both pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.

The University of Nottingham Health Service offer the full range of contraceptive services.  Make an appointment with a nurse to discuss your options.
