There are plenty of other kinds of contraception to choose from although condoms are the best option for protecting against STIs like chlamydia. If you want to find out what’s right for you, you can get advice from your local doctor or Sexual Health clinic (use the postcode search to find your nearest sexual health service).

Some of the options available are:
- Male condom
- Female condom
- Combined pill
- Progestogen only pill
- Contraceptive injection
- Contraceptive patch
- Intrauterine device (IUD) Coil
- Intrauterine system (IUS) Coil
