Let’s talk about contraception!
There are many options available now and it can be confusing to work out which method is best for you. Of course you want your chosen method of contraception to be reliable.
Did you know that the efficiency rate of condoms for contraception is only 82% and the combined oral contraceptive pill is 91%.
In recent years the use of LARCs (Long acting reversible contraception) has been increasing, because these methods are the most effective for preventing pregnancy. LARCS include hormonal and non-hormonal intrauterine devices (IUDs) and hormone implants. LARCs have greater than 99% efficiency for contraception, and can offer other benefits too, like period control.
Dr Louisa Gilles is a qualified hormonal IUD inserter. No referral is required from your usual doctor however an initial consulation is required to discuss the procedure and assess suitability. The procedure is performed onsite and Medicare rebates apply.
If you would like to consider one of these methods then make an appointment to discuss it further.
