Patients will need an initial consultation to discuss risks and to ensure cervical screening tests (Smear Test) are up-to-date. A negative chlamydia result is also required.
You can check with your existing GP for your latest Cervical Screening (Smear Test). Patients can have a chlamydia test with their own GP before attending your appointment with us or a test can be requested at your appointment. Please be aware additional costs will apply for this test.
Patients having the Contraceptive Coil fitted should abstain from sexual intercourse for two weeks prior or use barriers, i.e. Condoms, if they are not on the Contraceptive Pill.
A pregnancy rest will also be checked at the consent stage to ensure you are not pregnant before the Contraceptive Coil is placed.
