Contraception Choices

Contraception choices Ireland are provided by providing a detailed guide to what contraception is available on the market and how to access it.

There is a wide range of contraception choices in Ireland today, it can be overwhelming to try make informed decisions about which contraception choice is right for you. It is essential to be knowledgeable and take control of your reproductive health, keeping in mind your lifestyle and personal choices. From the contraceptive pills to IUDs, patches, injections, and condoms, there’s something that suits everyone’s preferences and needs. 

With the free contraception scheme by the HSE, there is an array of contraception to choose from.  

Every contraception comes with their own pros and cons, and what works best for someone else might not work best for you. Remember to consider how the contraception will fit with your lifestyle and consult a healthcare provider when in doubt.  

Debunking the Myths runs a series of expert-led workshops that address various aspects of sexual health and wellbeing, including contraceptives. These workshops are conducted by health professionals, which offers a judgement-free and evidence-based environment for senior cycle students to ask questions about all things sexual health anonymously. 

Based on the questions we received during our workshops, we recorded a series of videos in which Dr Vicky O’Dwyer, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at the Rotunda Hospital, answers them in a clear and concise way.
