"You cannot have maternal health without reproductive health. And reproductive health includes contraception and family planning and access to legal, safe abortion." – Hillary Clinton
We provide a full range of family-planning and birth-control methods. Our family-planning methods include:
- Contraceptive pill
- Contraceptive injections, namely Nuresterate and Depo-Provera
- The loop or IUCD
- Minera or IUS
- Skin patch (Evra) and implants including Norplant or Jadelle
- Male and female condoms are available free of charge
Access to contraception for children
Certain sections of the new Children's Act allow those above 12 access to contraceptives, HIV testing and legal abortion.
Emergency contraception, or the morning-after pill, is also available. If you have had unprotected sex, please come in as soon as possible, and not later than 72 hours thereafter. In addition to the emergency contraception, the doctor will advise you on post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) to prevent HIV/Aids transmission if necessary.
We do male and female sterilisations. Sterilisation is not reversible. It is therefore not advisable for young patients with one child as they may change their mind and want more children later in life.
