Contraception counseling

Our counselors provides advice on contraception for those who want it.

Today there are many options for contraception, but only condoms protect you against sexually transmitted diseases. Here are some of the most common contraceptive methods:

  • Oral contraceptives (with or without estrogen)
  • Contraceptive implant
  • Contraceptive patches
  • NuvaRing
  • Hormonal- inert or copper IUDs (intrauterine devices)
  • Contraceptive injection (not recommended for women under the age of 20)
  • Condoms

Contact Amathea if you have any questions.

All women between 16 and 19 years of age can get free birth control pills (the woman must be at least 16 years and 1 month old). You must first get a prescription for oral contraceptives from a doctor or midwife/public health nurse, and then collect them at a pharmacy. It is not necessary to have a pelvic exam to get a prescription for birth control pills.

Starting in 2016 all midwives and public health nurses may write prescriptions for women over the age of 16.
