Whatever you decide, it is important to consider what contraception option you might use in the future.

Contraception can be started immediately after an abortion or birth. There are many methods of contraception available. Long acting reversible contraceptive methods are the most effective. These include the contraceptive implant (Implanon) and the intra-uterine devices (IUDs).

More information about the range of contraception options available to you can be found at the Family Planning NSW website: https://www.fpnsw.org.au/health-information/individuals/contraception
