Check out the new My Contraception and Sexual Health podcast series hosted by Pharmacist Jess Redden. This four-part podcast series will provide you with all the information you need to help choose the right contraception option for you.
Following the launch of a free contraception scheme for 17–25-year-old females in Ireland, we are aware of the many gaps in information that exist for young people around their sexual and contraceptive health
Research conducted by the Dublin Well Women Centre highlighted many of these information gaps including that almost half (49%) of 17–24-year-old females are not aware that the contraceptive pill has a failure rate of 9%.¹
In the series, Jess speaks to four health professionals to share all you need to know about your hormones, sexual health and contraception options. For more information on contraception options and sexual health visit mycontraception.ie
