Contraception

Free and confidential advice and support about contraception and pregnancy

At the Hub in Truro, and our clinics around Cornwall, we can help with emergency contraception (both the emergency contraceptive pill and coil) and on-going contraception. We can also discuss your options with you if you find out you are pregnant.

The sooner you attend for emergency contraception (EHC) after unprotected sex, the more effective it will be.

We can supply the “morning after” pill or the IUD (coil). The IUD is the most effective emergency contraception and can be fitted up to 5 days after you’ve had unprotected sex. The morning after pill is most effective when used within 72 hours of having unprotected sex.

How do I get emergency contraception?

Please call our central booking team on 01872 255044 and tell us you need emergency contraception. We will do our best to see you as soon as possible. Alternatively you can attend one of our drop-in clinics. Click here for details of where and when our contraception clinics are.

STIs and on-going contraception

If you have had unprotected sex, we may suggest that you get an STI test and talk to you about planned contraception. Find out more about our sexual health service.

If you are pregnant, we can discuss the options available and refer you for a termination of pregnancy if you decide this is the right choice for you.

We can offer advice on, and provide you with, the type of contraception that will suit you best.

Most importantly, we want to make sure you go home happy with the contraception you have been supplied with. Our team are used to helping people from all backgrounds, ages and genders.

It’s their job to make you feel at ease, explain everything and not to judge you. Click on any of the names below to read more information about that type of contraception on NHS Choices.

Or start on the main NHS Choices Contraception Guide page.

Stopping your contraception

If you want to stop your contraception because you want to get pregnant, we can remove coils/implants and give you pre-conception advice. We can also refer you to your GP for further advice and support.

If you are unhappy with your current contraception, we are happy to discuss alternative options with you.
