The Faculty of Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH) has updated its guidance for women needing to access contraception, abortion and other sexual and reproductive healthcare during the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Faculty’s advice to all women is that they should access care when they need it, despite the levels of COVID-19 infection in their area. Women should initially make contact by telephone or email.
The advice, which was updated on 9th February 2021, provides guidance for women who need contraception and abortion during the Covid-19 pandemic. The FSRH wants to ensure that people of all ages have access to effective contraception during the Covid-19 pandemic in order to help avoid unplanned pregnancies, and have timely access to emergency contraception and abortion services if they need them.
The guide also contains useful links for women across the UK’s regions, to help them to access further advice and care.
Members are encouraged to share the advice with their patients and with their local communities. The new advice guide can be accessed here.
