An Intrauterine Contraceptive Device (IUCD) is inserted into a woman’s uterus to prevent pregnancy. Depending on the type of device, it will need to be changed after between three and five years. We no longer insert IUCDs. Please contact your nearest Family Planning Clinic if you are wanting to use this type of contraception.
We can insert other long acting contraceptive devices like the contraceptive rod (Jadelle). Usually we would have an initial consult to discuss options and what’s involved, followed by an appointment for the insertion of the Jadelle.
