We advise you to think about the different manners of birth control during your pregnancy. In particular which one you would like to use after the delivery. We will discuss this with you during the maternity period and the follow-up check. This will take place four to six weeks after the delivery. There are different kinds of birth control possible.
The birth control pill
We are able to prescribe the recipe for the birth control pill (oral anticonception) during the follow-up check or our maternity consult. We will inform your general practitioner of your choice of birth control.
Different kinds of intra uterine devices
During the birth control consult it's possible to choose between the hormonal Intra uterine device Kyleena or Mirena ór for the copper intra uterine device T-Safe. If you choose one of these we will prescribe a recipe for you. Thereafter you need to pick up the Intra uterine device at your pharmacy.
Insertion and removal of the intra uterine device
It's possible for us to insert a intra uterine device from 12 weeks after the delivery or caesarean section. By that time the cervix and uteris will be recovered sufficiently after the delivery.
Right before te insertion we will measure your bloodpressure and weight. We also need to know your medicalhistory.
Thereafter we will insert the intra uterine device. This will take a few minutes and is a bit sensitive. That is why you need to take 1000 mg paracetamol or 200 mg ibuprofen approximately 45 minutes before the appointment.
After the insertion you can have a nagging feeling in the lower abdomen. This is usually harmless and short termd. During the first months it's possible to have irregular bloodloss. We refer to the prescription for detailed information about the intra uterine device. You will receive a card from us with details about the insertion and until when, the intra uterine device can remain in place. You need to keep this safe.
You can also contact us for the removal of your intra uterine device.
You can also contact us for the placing of a hormone rod in your arm. This is allowed 6 weeks after the delivery. You're protected for 3 years long. Take 1000 mg paracetamol or 200 mg ibuprofen approximately 45 minutes before the appointment.
The birth control pill or the intra uterine device is mostly paid by yourself. With an additional insurance you can usually get a partial or full refund from your health insurance company. The most insurances will compensate the insertion of the intra uterine device. To avoid unexpected cost we advise you to check your health insurance in advance.
