Contraceptive Services within the ISHS
The majority of contraceptive needs in Northamptonshire should be met/provided by your General Practitioner (GP).

We are however, able to provide all methods of contraception if required but you will be encouraged to obtain your on-going contraception from your GP. The service we provide is a free and confidential service. ISHS offer both appointments and drop-in clinics and you should check the details of what contraceptive methods are available at each individual site before attending. You should also check whether you require an appointment or you may drop in.

ISHS are able to offer the following methods of contraception:

emergency contraception
combined hormonal pill
combined hormonal patches
progestogen-only pill
contraceptive injections
contraceptive implants (Nexplanon)
intrauterine device (IUD/coil)
intrauterine system (IUS)/coil)
