Description

Family Planning provides sexual and reproductive health services from 30 clinics across New Zealand. Anyone can come to a Family Planning Clinic – many have drop-in sessions with no need for an appointment.

Our clinical services are free for New Zealand residents under 22 years. For those with a Community Services Card, a visit to one of our clinics is $5. For all other New Zealand Residents, a standard appointment is $40 and a procedure appointment is $50. 

We provide contraception, including long acting reversible contraception (IUDs, IUSs – Mirena and contraceptive implants). Our clinic staff can also help with STI testing and treatment, pregnancy testing, advice and referral if required, cervical screening, menopause, pre menstrual syndrome and much more. An early medical abortion service is available at our Tauranga and Whangārei clinics.

We also offer clinical training for doctors, nurses and midwives. This training includes the Family Planning Certificate in Contraception and Sexual Health.

Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC)

LARC methods are very effective at preventing unplanned pregnancy and are “fit and forget” forms of contraception – you don’t need to remember them every day or every month. LARC methods: Intrauterine Contraceptive Devices (IUCD or IUD) are inserted through the cervix into a woman’s uterus. IUCDs may be either hormonal (Mirena® or Jaydess® ) or non-hormonal (copper IUCD). Jadelle® is a hormone-releasing implant that is inserted just under the skin of the upper arm. Depending on the type of device, it will need to be changed after between three and ten years. Read more about LARC methods here
