Get Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC)

Protect yourself from unplanned pregnancy with effective, long-lasting birth control!

Limelight offers a range of LARC methods:

An IUD is a small T-shaped plastic and copper device that’s put into your womb (uterus) by a doctor or nurse.

It releases copper to stop you from getting pregnant and protects against pregnancy for between 5 and 10 years. It’s sometimes called a “coil” or “copper coil”.

An IUS is a small, T-shaped plastic device that’s put into your womb (uterus) by a doctor or nurse.

It releases the hormone progestogen to stop you from getting pregnant and lasts for 3 to 5 years, depending on the brand.

A small plastic rod inserted under the skin of your arm, releasing progestogen. Effective for 3 years.

Who can get LARC at Limelight?

Most of our female patients are eligible for LARC methods. Discuss your options with one of our GPs in a family planning appointment.
