Finding the right contraception for you can sometimes be tricky. Contraception can vary greatly in efficacy, method of delivery, and potential side effects.

At Edgeworth Family Practice, our GPs and Sexual and Reproductive Health Nurse are here to help in facilitating contraceptive choice. It is our model of care to look at the big picture when assisting you to find the most suitable contraception. We need to look at your past medical history, family history, and attend some basic measurements to assist us in ensuring the contraception we prescribe is safe for you.

We are proud to offer long-acting reversible contraceptive implant insertion and removal at Edgeworth Family Practice, including Mirena IUD and Implanon NXT. As the name suggests, these provide long term and highly effective contraception, which stops working immediately on removal.

If you wish to discuss contraception, book an appointment with one of our GP’s today, or alternatively, you can book a bulk billed consultation with our Sexual and Reproductive Health Nurse by phoning reception or clicking on the booking link on this page.
