Contraception clinic


The Contraception Clinic provides contraceptive services to Turku residents under 25 years of age. Older clients may attend the clinic with a referral from a doctor, public health nurse or social worker.

The clinic also provides:

• postnatal check-ups when an IUD or a contraceptive implant is used,
• assistance to clients of all ages seeking abortion,
• assistance to clients seeking sterilisation,
• free emergency contraceptive pills to clients under the age of 18. Older clients may purchase the pill from a pharmacy without visiting the Contraception Clinic.

Those wishing to use the services of the Contraception Clinic must have a need for contraception.

Contraceptive counselling is free of charge. Clients who require a doctor’s appointment for medical treatment are charged a health centre fee, and clients who miss an appointment without cancelling it first will be charged a missed appointment fee.
