Contraception –contraceptive rod/implant insertion/removal, hormonal IUD removal
Many of our doctors are experienced in all aspects of contraception, with a number undertaking extra training by completing a Certificate of Family Planning & Sexual Health. We can provide you with up-to-date information and advice regarding the best option for you.

We can assist you with decision making regarding unplanned pregnancies and with screening choices in your pregnancy, including the use of non invasive prenatal testing (NIPT).
