Following a miscarriage or termination, your normal menstrual cycle can resume almost immediately, meaning that it is possible for you to become pregnant again within a few weeks. If you don’t want to get pregnant straight away you will need to think about your contraceptive options.

When choosing contraception, some of the factors that you need to think about are your age, lifestyle, finances, previous contraception and what you think is suitable and acceptable for you. There are many contraceptive options available other than the pill or condoms, and some may be more appropriate to your individual needs than others.
