Checks-ups | Pap Smears | Other Health Concerns

There are a number of health concerns that women face. Sometimes these are not particularly pleasant. And yet, there are times when we think talking to someone about them may actually be worse than the condition.

Ladies, it’s time to just get it over with. Get it out of the way; tick it off the list and enjoy some peace of mind.

This page contains all the information you need to prepare yourself for a trip to the doctor to discuss lady business. From symptoms to tests, we have you covered and you are more than welcome to pop down for a discussion any time if you want more advice.

Get back to feeling comfortable in your own skin.

Pap Smears

Pap smears are recommended for all sexually active women every two years. This is a simple procedure where a swab sample is taken from the cervix and examined for anomalies which may indicate the development of cervical cancer. No drugs or anaesthetics are needed for the procedure which can be completed by a general practitioner, nurse or women’s health worker. It only takes a couple of minutes and could help save your life.

When was your last pap smear?

Pap Smears

There are numerous contraception options available for woman, which range from short to long term. The varying types can make it difficult to choose one so it may be an idea to discuss your options if you are looking to start or change your contraceptive. We offer:

  • Prescriptions of the contraceptive pill (taken daily)
  • Contraceptive injections administered every 3 months
  • Implanon implants (a small rod with a slow release hormone inserted into the upper arm) These are effective for up to 3 years. *Fees apply
  • Mirena implants (a small t shaped device with a slow release hormone inserted into the uterus) These are effective for up to 5 years. *Fees apply

If you wish to discuss any of these options please feel free to book a consultation. Our practitioners have a wealth of knowledge and experience, so you can make an informed decision and the right choice for you. *Standard consultations are bulk billable
