During your appointment at our clinic, we will discuss the use of contraception with you. Directly after the abortion treatment (or within your first menstruation cycle), we can fit you with a copper coil (IUD), hormonal coil (IUS) or contraceptive implant. These contraceptives can be purchased at our clinic. You can also buy a contraceptive implant somewhere else and bring it with you.

Our contraceptives:


Do you have health insurance in the Netherlands? Insertion of a coil or contraceptive implant following the abortion treatment, or within your first menstruation cycle, is free of charge, but you do pay for the contraceptive itself. You can buy one at our clinic or buy it somewhere else and bring it with you.

Are you not insured in the Netherlands or are you from abroad? You also pay for the insertion procedure.

For current prices of contraceptives and insertion procedure, please call us on weekdays


Some health insurances cover (part of) the costs of the coil or contraceptive implant. Please contact your health insurer for any medical cover.

Younger than 21

If you are younger than 18, the cost of the fitting and the coil or contraceptive implant itself are covered by your basic health insurance. This also applies to women between 18 and 21, but the cost will be deducted from your health insurance’s deductible excess (‘eigen risico’). You have to submit the invoice to your health insurer.

We offer the following coils (IUDs and IUSs):

  • T-safe (copper coil)

Copper or hormonal coil?

The copper coil (IUD)

  • The copper coil is effective
  • Periods are a little heavier
  • Once fitted, it works immediately
  • The copper coil is effective for 5 to 10 years (depending on the type)
  • Contains no hormones

The hormonal coil (IUS)

  • The hormonal coil is highly effective
  • Periods are lighter or disappear
  • Periods can become irregular
  • Continuously releases a small amount of the hormone progestogen
  • Transfers much less progestogen into the blood than the pill
  • When fitted during menstruation, becomes effective immediately
  • The hormonal coil is effective for 5 years

B. Contraceptive implant (Implanon)

A contraceptive implant (Implanon) is a tiny rod of flexible plastic that is inserted under the skin of the upper arm. The implant releases the hormone progestogen. The implant lasts for 3 years. For women over 90 kg this is usually 2 years.
The contraceptive implant is one of the most effective contraceptives.
