Marie Stopes Ladies

Trained midwives and doctors bringing services to their communities

About Marie Stopes Ladies

The Marie Stopes Ladies seek to providing services to women and girls in their communities, especially those living in remote and hard-to-reach areas who have difficulty accessing our centres.

As part of the Empower project under the Gender Equality Fund supported by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the project aims to advance women’s economic empowerment by increasing the clinical capacity, business skills and financial independence of entrepreneurial health providers, or MS Ladies, and increasing awareness and access to reproductive health services for women in their communities.

Medical abortion (the abortion pill) involves taking medication to end a pregnancy.  

It's a safe, non-invasive alternative to surgical abortion, which we can offer to women outside of a healthcare environment This means women can have more control over when and where their treatment takes place.

Implant

Implant

An effective, long-acting and reversible method of contraception 

The implant is a small plastic rod or capsule, about the size of a matchstick, that releases the hormone progestin. A specially trained provider performs a minor surgical procedure to place the implant under the skin on the inside of a woman’s arm. The implant keeps a woman’s progestin levels artificially stable and prevents the body from preparing itself for pregnancy. Once in place, it prevents pregnancy for three to five years.

IUD

IUD

An effective, long-acting and reversible method of contraception 

The IUD is a small, T-shaped device that is placed in a woman's womb and provides contraceptive protection for up to ten years. 

The IUD is a long-acting, reversible method of contraception (LARC). Long-acting methods of contraception all have the advantage that, once in place, you don’t need to think about them until they need replacing and none of them interrupt sex. 

A woman can use an IUD whether or not she's had children. IUDs are also straightforward for a trained provider to insert and remove, which can generally be done at any time.

Short-term methods (condom, pills, injectables)

Short-term methods (condom, pills, injectables)

Condoms  

The male condom is a barrier contraception method for preventing pregnancy and STIs. 

When used correctly, condoms are highly effective. Condoms are also the only contraceptive method that protect against both pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV and syphilis. 

Pills 

Contraceptive pills contain hormones, similar to those naturally produced by a woman’s body. The pill needs to be taken at the same time every day to effectively prevent pregnancy. It’s ability to prevent pregnancy depends on a person using it correctly. 

The two types of pill we have available have different advantages and disadvantages, depending on the woman. During a consultation, we can help you decide if one of these is right for you. 

Injectables 

A contraceptive injectable contains a hormone that is injected into the body that stops eggs being released. Injectables are a very effective method of contraception when used correctly. 

To continue being effective, you must make sure to return for an injection every 2-3 months, otherwise you risk the chance of becoming pregnant.
