Need to Know

What does contraceptive coil fitting or removal entail?

The contraceptive coil, also known as an intrauterine device (IUD), is a small T-shaped apparatus inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. A trained healthcare professional can remove it at any time. The removal procedure involves the healthcare provider gently tugging on the IUD's strings, which causes its arms to fold and allows it to slide out.

What is a contraceptive implant and how is it inserted or removed?

A contraceptive implant is a small, flexible rod that is inserted under the skin of the upper arm. It releases hormones to prevent pregnancy. A healthcare professional must perform both the insertion and removal of the implant.

What is a contraceptive injection?

A contraceptive injection contains the hormone progestin. It works by preventing ovulation and thickening the cervical mucus, which helps prevent sperm from reaching the egg. The injection is typically administered every 12 weeks.

What is a cervical screening (HPV Smear Test)?

A cervical screening, also known as an HPV Smear Test, is a procedure that collects cells from the cervix to test for human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is a common virus that can cause changes to the cells of the cervix. If left untreated, these changes could potentially develop into cervical cancer.

Insurance Coverage & Self-Pay

Insurance coverage for sexual health and contraception services may vary depending on the provider and specific insurance plan. Check with your insurance provider for details. For those without insurance or those who prefer to self-pay, many clinics offering self-pay options are available via Odycy.
