The contraception visit

Which contraceptive methods do we offer?

There are various contraceptive methods, which we show you below to give you an outline of all the options available to you. Ask your gynaecologist which one is right for you. At Dexeus Mujer, we offer the best advice and the most advanced techniques to apply your chosen method.

  • Without a stable partner: barrier methods.
  • With a stable partner, preferably young: hormonal methods.
  • With a stable partner, often with previous pregnancies who want a reversible method: intrauterine devices.
  • With previous pregnancies, who have fulfilled their desire to be mothers: surgical methods.
