Postpartum contraception

Postpartum contraception is to prevent unintended and closely spaced pregnancies within the month’s period after the childbirth.  Postpartum contraception is important as pregnancies during this period pose a risk to mother and baby.

Some of the contraception’s can be used post the delivery and our facility we strongly recommend progestogen-only methods, which are:

  • Contraceptive Implant
  • Depo Provera Injection
  • Progestogen-only pill
  • Condoms
  • Emergency Contraceptive pill
  • Intra Uterine device
  • Vaginal ring
