Family complete

Family complete

You’ve had the children you’d always planned to have and as far as you are concerned your family is now complete. You may have spent many years being a great mum but may now want to look forward to a time when you aren’t changing nappies and wiping noses all day long. Or you may have chosen to have only one child or no children at all and have decided this is right for you. So, you want a contraceptive that will protect you from unplanned pregnancy for many years to come, without having to remember to take something every day. The irreversibility of sterilization doesn’t appeal to you either.

If any of these situations describe you, then a long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) may be a suitable choice for you. A single administration of a long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) can give you from 12 weeks to up to several years of freedom from worrying about unplanned pregnancy1,2,3,4. It can also be a good and effective alternative if you are thinking about using sterilization as a permanent form of contraception. Some forms of sterilization may be reversed if you change your mind, but this involves an operation and the success is far from guaranteed5. Many women come to regret being sterilized5.
