For your own protection, use contraception
You have a variety of options when it comes to selecting a method of birth control, and their effectiveness may vary. It's essential to keep in mind that no form of contraception guarantees 100% effectiveness.
The most appropriate birth control choice for you will be influenced by factors such as your overall health, lifestyle, relationships, susceptibility to STIs, and the significance of preventing pregnancy to you.
If you’re looking for a long acting reversible contraception (LARC) talk to your doctor to see if an intrauterine device (IUD) or contraceptive implant is right for you.
Intrauterine device (IUD)
Dr Marita Campbell, Dr Tammy Herring , Dr Irena Vigderovitch and Dr Sue English are all specially trained doctors that have had many years of experience inserting IUD's. They are available to ensure all your contraceptive needs are met.
IUD birth control is one of the most effective, low-maintenance forms of contraception. The small T-shape device is inserted into the uterus and may remain in place for up to 5 years.Whether you have had children or not, IUDs could be a great option as they are reliable.They come in hormonal or non-hormonal (copper) designs.
Hormonal IUDs (the ones used in Australia are Mirena or Kyleena) can also treat heavy menstrual bleeding. Mirenas can also be useful as part of a hormonal treatment regime for menopausal women.The choice of IUD recommended for you will depend on several factors. You will need to have a consultation with a doctor prior to booking in for an IUD insertion. At this appointment your doctor will assess the best option for you and explain more about the procedure and what to expect afterwards.
The doctors charge $375 (not including the IUD) for IUD insertion and the Medicare Rebate is $115.85.
The Implanon NXT is a flexible plastic rod, 4 cm long. It is inserted under the skin of your inner upper arm and may remain in place for up to 3 years. The implant slowly releases a hormone, progestogen, into your body. Progestogen is similar to the hormone produced by the ovaries.
Implanon insertion is performed by Dr Marita Campbell, Dr Jane Isaac, Dr Irena Vigderovich, Dr Tammy Herring, Dr Sheena Azar, Dr Sue English, and Dr Cathy Sloan.
You will need to make an appointment to discuss the implant before you can have the procedure.
The doctors charge:
Implanon insertion only - $250 and the Medicare Rebate is $33.15
Implanon removal only - $280 and the Medicare Rebate is $56.35
Implanon removal and reinsertion at same time - $310 and the Medicare Rebate is $89.70
