Rolle Contraception and Sexual Health Services
At Rolle, we provide a wide range of contraceptive services, including pills, implants and other long-acting reversible methods of contraception. Do speak to a member of the team as contraceptive advice is tailored to the individual patient. It may be a nurse or doctor who you are advised to speak to. Pill checks can often be done via eConsult
What are my contraceptive options?
Contraception can help to prevent pregnancy and some sexually transmitted infections (STIs). There are lots of types of contraception to choose from depending on the type of person you are, your lifestyle and the type of sex you are having.
If you require a coil fit or a re-fit you will need to book a face to face consultation with the GP's who provide this service. THE CENTRE ( Sexual Health clinic, Exmouth) are also able to offer this service, please see there details below. Please watch this informative four minute video
We also provide emergency hormonal contraception (EHC). EHC is also available to buy from many pharmacies.
If you are aged 13-24 some pharmacies are able to provide it for free. You can learn more about local sexual health services as well as finding your nearest pharmacist who can provide emergency hormonal contraception by using the Devon Sexual Health Service
Termination of Pregnancy
Patients can self-refer to Marie Stopes services without the need for a GP appointment. The confidential telephone line – One Call 0345 300 8090 – is fully operational, day or night, 7 days a week. They aim to provide initial consultations within 48 hours and have capacity to provide treatment in clinics in Devon and Bristol.
Their Exeter clinic is located at St Leonards Practice, Athelstan Road, Exeter, EX1 1SB – available every Tuesday and Wednesday 08:00 – 16:00
Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) Screening
Rolle provides testing and free treatment for STIs, such as Chlamydia. Chlamydia is the most common bacterial STI in the UK, around two thirds of women and half of all men with chlamydia won’t have any obvious symptoms.
If you are aged 25 and under you can register for a free of charge home test through the National Chlamydia Screening Programme. If you test positive you will need to be seen at the surgery or a sexual health clinic.
If you are over 25 you need to pop into the surgery or a sexual health clinic for testing, the tests are still free of charge.
