Sex and contraception

If you have any questions or concerns about sex or contraception, you can discuss these with us in confidence at any time.

Contraception is especially important as some medications you may be taking can be harmful to an unborn baby, whether you’re the father or the mother. Methotrexate, leflunomide and mycophenolate are particularly inadvisable if you’re planning a pregnancy. However there are some medications which are safe so it’s important you discuss planning a pregnancy with the team early on.

Further information on sexual health and advice for the best type of contraception for you and can be found via these links.
