Hey everyone,

i probably need a women's doctor in Sweden to get either a Nuvaring (contraceptive vaginal ring) or a Gynefix (a new IUD); but i don't have a gyn here. So it would be awesome if someone knows a drop in (or: I need the appointment soon) gyn in Stockholm.
I don't need someone who talks for hours, i have a lot of checks already done in my homecountry, but since I new moved to Sweden and found the guy of my life but didn't yet needed any contraceptives, I should see a gyn, i think.

And do you know about costs, also btw?

Thank you!

Normally you don't visit a gyn for contraception in Sweden

Contraception for women is a job for the community midwife (barnmorska) found in most healthcare centres (vårdcentral) under MVC (modravårdcentral) - they advice and prescribe contraception and fit certain types

If you are under 25 then many people go to the kommun youth clinic in their area that deals with contraception as well as sex, relationship and mental health issues - there is a list of addreesses on their website

Here you can see how long the queue is;

The cost for a visit will be a few hundred swedish crowns, about 100-400 sek.

I have a related question, hope the OP won't mind me asking here.

Do you need a prescription to get the Pill here in Sweden?
