Contraception Clinic 

At the Contraception Clinic, we will help you to find the most suitable method of birth control for you. We will help you to start using the method of contraception and carry out follow-up checks. In addition, you can get advice and help with any problems related to prevention. 

For contraceptive counselling, students should turn primarily to the school nurse. Secondary  school pupils (such as high schools and vocational schools) have access to family planning or student healthcare services, while polytechnic and university students turn primarily to the Student Health Service (FSHS). 

Infertility 

If pregnancy has not started after a year of regular trying, it may be appropriate to seek infertility tests. In the Family Planning Clinic, we carry out preliminary surveys and examinations as well as give you referrals for further examinations.

Abortion 

We provide support and guidance in family planning when pregnancy is unwanted and abortion is being considered. We will carry out preliminary examinations and send an abortion application to the Gynaecological Outpatient Clinic, where abortions will also be performed. 

Papa test  

Cervical cancer screening (papa test) usually takes place in the Family Planning Clinic. All women between the ages of 30 and 65 are invited to a papa test every five years. 

We also take papa tests on women who use contraception. 

Payment for non-cancelled or late cancelled booking. If you cannot arrive for the scheduled visit, you must cancel your appointment no later than the previous working day. If you do not cancel your booking and do not arrive, you will be charged a fee of EUR 51.50. The fee is charged to anyone over the age of 18. No fee will be charged if there is a valid reason for not cancelling the booked time.
