Other things

Other things you may want to know

Emotional upset
You may feel you would like to discuss your feelings afterwards. This can be done during your next visit to the Sexual Health clinic, or by your GP or a counsellor.

It is important to make arrangements for reliable contraception. If you are going on the pill, you can start the day you leave hospital. The contraception injection or an implant can be given to you before you leave the hospital. Arrangements can also be made for the insertion of an intra-uterine device (IUCD or coil). Condoms are always available. Please ask for a leaflet regarding methods of contraception, or click on the Contraception bar at the top for further information.
