Contraception

PLEASE NOTE THAT UNFORTUNATELY AT PRESENT WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING REFERRALS FROM OTHER GP'S/SERVICES

Mirena Coil

We provide Mirena Coil fitting for women who have had children and those who haven't.  Generally, for fitting of a Mirena, 3 appointments are required, a pre-fitting visit, to assess and ensure safe and appropriate time to fit the Mirena, the fitting of the Mirena itself, and a check up 4-6 weeks afterwards. 

Copper Coil

We recently started to provide Copper Coils in addition to the popular Mirena Coil.  The Copper Coil that we use has a licence for 10 years contraceptive cover.  Much the same as the Mirena, 3 appointments are usually required to ensure complete assessment, fitting, and check up.

Implanon

The Implanon is a 4cm long flexible bar that sits under the skin of your upper arm and provides 3 years contraceptive cover.  Usually, the implanon is ideal for younger women who have not had children.  2 appointments are generally neccessary; one prior to insertion and the insertion itself. 

Depo-Provera

The depo-provera is an injectable contraceptive that is given every 12 weeks.  Our practice nurse is a registered nurse prescriber and can provide this service without the need to see the doctor.

Oral Contraceptive Pill

Our practice nurse is a registered nurse prescriber, who can do a complete check up for your "pill" and provide you with your prescriptions without the need to see a GP.  Usually 3 or 6 month prescriptions can be given.
