Contraception in Sydney CBD

Most people like to plan when they want to have a family. There are a number of factors than can have bearing on your decision to have kids; these include financial stability, relationship stability, other family members, parental health & wellbeing, career etc. You can manage your fertility with the use of Contraception Sydney CBD. There is a range of contraception options to choose from and the expert Citydoc doctors can give you advice as to which of these will be best suited for you & your partner. These different contraceptive methods are divided into categories- hormonal, non-hormonal & permanent.

Hormonal

Intra-uterine system (IUS)

This system has truly brought about a sea change in women's health. This device is placed in the woman's uterus and it locally releases small amounts of progesterone into the womb. The design of the device is such that it ensures the natural structure of the uterus holds it in place. It provides you effective Contraception in Redfern.

Oral contraception (the pill)

There are a number of contraceptive pills available; at times you may have to change pills to identify which one suits you best. Some pills could have side effects such as skin breakouts and headaches. These oral contraception options could contain either progesterone alone or oestrogen and progesterone. When taken as prescribed, the pill provides excellent cycle control and contraception.

Emergency Contraception

In case unprotected sexual intercourse occurs or if a condom breaks, it's still possible to reduce the chances of occurrence of a pregnancy. You can buy a single over-the-counter pill; these are also available by prescription from your physician. This emergency contraceptive pill has to be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse.

Vaginal Ring

This thin silicone ring is placed right at the top of the vagina and it releases hormones that get absorbed into the blood supply. This provides the same kind of contraceptive cover that the pill provides. The benefit of this ring is that the woman doesn't have to always remember to take the contraceptive pills every day. A new ring has to be used every month. In addition to these methods of Contraception Sydney CBD, you can opt for:

Implants

  • Implanon - this is a contraceptive implant that�s inserted under the skin of the upper inner arm; this implant is a slow release progesterone device
  • Depot Contraceptive Injection - This injection has to be given every 3 months and is an effective form of Contraception in Redfern
  • Intra-Uterine Device (IUD)- This is a non-hormonal form of contraception that contains a very small amount of copper that provides contraception
