Contraception and sexual advice & services:

There are many types of contraception available and none are perfect. The Contraception Choices website provides honest information to help weigh up the pros and cons.

The iCaSH (integrated Contraception and Sexual Health) service provides all aspects of sexual and reproductive health, including contraception, sexually transmitted infection (STI) and HIV testing and treatment. We also work with Terrence Higgins Trust, who provide community outreach services including free condoms, Chlamydia screening and sexual health advice and signposting.

iCaSH clinics are available at locations across Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes. 

Visit the iCaSH website for information and support around a range of sexual health issues, which may affect you, and learn about and choose contraception that suits you.
