Responsible & Effective Contraception Gives You Control
Unplanned and unwanted pregnancy is an experience best avoided. But effective contraception can give you 99+% assurance that this kind of 'mishap' will not happen to you!
Modern contraception can be tailored to your needs and personal circumstances.
Finding the right contraceptive depends on your past medical history, your lifestyle, your reproductive history and it comes in many forms.
In fact, the right contraception can do much more than just provide birth control.
Is it skin friendly?
Does it need to help manage your painful and/or heavy periods?
Do you want a hormone free option?
Will it affect your libido?
Will it cause you to gain weight?
Trading off the risks and benefits is a balancing act and you don't need to work it out by yourself.
Our Women's health GPs know the pros and cons of all the contraceptive options available and will work with you to find the best choice for you.
If we need to order tests such as an ultrasound or blood test, or perform screening for eg STI or HPV, then that can generally be done at your local lab, and usually with no out of pocket expense*.
*labs will almost always bulk bill our patients, and provide a reduced fee to patients who use health insurance
If you've recently had unprotected sex and you're in need of emergency contraception (morning after pill or copper iud) you'll need an urgent appointment.
You only have a maximum of 5 days from the date of your 'booboo'. If you can't get a booking today via our booking system, we'd suggest calling our triage and we'll squeeze you in if we can!
