Where can I get contraception?

Where can I get contraception?

You can get condoms for free from any YPF accredited site.

For all the other methods, like the pill or implant, you need to speak to a nurse or doctor who will advise you on your choices and can prescribe contraception to you.

Some contraceptive methods, like the implant or the injection, must be fitted by a nurse or doctor. Sometimes this means that you have to book an appointment so it's a good idea to call the clinic beforehand if you think you might want to start using LARC (Long Acting Reversible Contraception).
