Contraception / Family planning

Our family planning service provides friendly and confidential advice in all aspects of birth control and sexual health for both men and women.

We provide advice for people to make informed decisions to stay healthy and safe. We specialise in advice on contraception, women’s health screening and general sexual health issues.

At our clinic we can help when planning to have children, the use of birth control, sexual education, prevention and management of STIs and infertility management.

At Dooradoyle Medical centre, we offer a full range of contraceptive options including:

  • Emergency contraception
  • Contraceptive pill prescribing
  • Fitting of long active reversible contraceptives such as implanon subdermal implant and the Mirena & Jaydess Intrauterine device*

Should you wish to be referred for either tubal ligation or vasectomy we are happy to discuss these options with you also.

There are a vast range of contraceptive options available to suit everyone and all of our doctors hold family planning certificates and partake of accreditation through the Irish College of General Practitioners to ensure that the highest standards are met.

All of our instruments for fitting of long acting contraceptives are single use disposable sterile instruments in accordance with best international practice.
