Some HIV treatment can make hormonal contraception less effective. But it really depends on the type of HIV treatment you are on – speak to a healthcare professional about these types of contraceptives:
They will talk you through your options and which ones will work with your specific HIV treatment.
Other types of contraception:
The IUD (intrauterine device – also known as the ‘copper coil’ or ‘the coil’): this is not affected by HIV treatment.
Emergency contraception: some types of HIV treatment can make emergency contraception less effective, so if you want to take this speak to your healthcare provider.
