All of our doctors at Pioneer Health are happy to see patients regarding women's health issues. These may range from advice on contraception to pre-pregnancy counselling, care around pregnancy, breast feeding, menopause, continence and sexual health problems.
Currently, we have a handful GP's who have completed the required training and perform the following women's health and contraceptive procedures:
- Implanon insertion and removal
- Mirena insertion and removal
- IUD insertion and removal
All of our GP's can perform cervical screening tests. The current recommended cancer screening for women includes performing regular cervical testing and breast screening. For information about cervical cancer screening, formally known as pap smears, please click here. For information about breast cancer screening click here.
For easy convenience, you may want to take advantage of our cervical screening clinics which are regularly run by a female clinician and covered by Medicare every Wednesday afternoon and evening. These appointments are strictly for cervical testing only.
