Planning for pregnancy

Women with type 1 diabetes


Timing your pregnancy is important.

Contraception enables you to plan your pregnancy around your personal circumstances, general health and diabetes management.

No single method of contraception is perfect for everyone. Different methods suit different couples and there are many forms of contraception suitable for women with diabetes.

It is best to discuss the most appropriate contraception for your individual needs with your GP, endocrinologist or obstetrician.
