Our women’s health related services
Contraception and birth control advice
We provide comprehensive contraception advice to ensure you have the information and support needed to make informed choices about your reproductive health. Our team is able to recommend the best birth control option for you based on your needs and medical history.
Investigation and management of gynaecological concerns
Gynaecological issues such as heavy periods, fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic pain and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) can be worrisome and painful. Our female specialists have experience and expertise in diagnosing, treating and managing these concerns using advanced diagnostic tools and personalised treatment plans based on your specific needs.
Medical termination of pregnancy
A medical termination of pregnancy is a safe and effective method to end a pregnancy in its early stages using medication. Generally recommended for pregnancies within the first 10 weeks, it is a non-surgical option for women who choose to end a pregnancy and can be conducted under the supervision of a healthcare professional. The decision to undergo a medical termination is deeply personal and our female GP is here to offer support, information and appropriate medical care throughout the process.
Sexual health encompasses sexual activity, relationships, reproductive health, sexual pleasure, and is an integral part of overall well-being and quality of life. Also included is the prevention and treatment of STIs. We offer comprehensive services including testing, counselling, and treatment to address any sexual health concerns you may have.
Insertion of IUDs
Intrauterine devices are a highly effective and long-lasting form of contraception, which will provide you with peace of mind and convenience if you’re sexually active but not ready to start a family. We offer safe, professional and comfortable insertion of IUDs as well as information on this contraceptive method.
Family planning plays a crucial role in women’s health and overall well-being. It enables women to better plan and prepare for pregnancy, ensuring that they are physically, emotionally and financially able to provide. Additionally, spacing pregnancies has been shown to improve maternal and child health outcomes. Our doctors are able to offer guidance and support to help you navigate your reproductive journey with confidence.
Vulval dermatology review and biopsy
Our female healthcare providers are experienced in examining the vulva area for visible signs or symptoms of dermatological conditions such as rashes, itching, lesions, discoloration, or abnormal growths. A biopsy may be recommended if there is a concerning lesion or area. Our GP is able to tailor treatment plans specifically for individual patients and address unique needs and concerns. Our team is able to diagnose and manage various vulva conditions, including dermatitis, infections, precancerous or cancerous lesions, and other skin disorders.
Menopause is a biological process that marks the end of a woman’s reproductive years. Symptoms include irregular periods, hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, sleep issues, mood changes, weight gain, changes in sexual function, changes in bone health and even cognitive changes.
