There are many types of contraception. You may need to experiment to find what works best for you.

You can find out about the different types of contraception below, including emergency contraception.

Free contraception will be available in Ireland from September for all women aged 17 to 25.

This will include:

  • GP appointments to talk about contraception options
  • prescriptions for combined oral contraception (the pill)
  • fitting and removal of long-acting reversible contraception (LARCs)
  • other types of contraception such as contraceptive injections, implants, IUS and IUDs (coils), the contraceptive patch and ring
  • emergency contraception

We will update this page soon with more information on how you can get free contraception.
