Contraception - Contraception decision tool
The My contraception tool can help you work out which method of contraception is best for you.
The sexual health charities Brook and FPA have developed a tool called "My contraception". This tool can help you decide which methods of contraception may be best for you.
Both women and men can use the tool, which asks questions about your health, lifestyle and contraceptive preferences. You can either complete a short version, which takes about five minutes, or a longer version that takes about 15 minutes. The longer version asks more detailed questions about your medical history.
All the answers you give are completely confidential, and cannot be linked back to you.
Once you have used the tool, you can go to your GP or local contraceptive (or family planning) clinic for more information about the contraceptive method the tool has helped you select. You can also get information about other contraceptive methods there too. The tool is available on two websites.
Where to find the tool
