Long-acting reversible contraception

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:1st Jul 2019

This guideline covers long-acting reversible contraception. It aims to increase the use of long-action reversible contraception by improving the information given to women about their contraceptive choices.

In March 2019 we revised our decision on how to implement the recommendations of our October 2017 review. Although no new evidence was identified, we noted significant changes in how we commission and provide contraceptive services in England. We have removed the recommendations in this guideline that no longer fit with current practice. There are also many new LARC products now available. See our long-acting reversible contraception: implementation resource summary for links to the latest information.
