IUCD Insertion

An Intrauterine Contraceptive Device (IUCD) is inserted into a woman’s uterus to prevent pregnancy. Depending on the type of device, it will need to be changed after between three and five years.  
One particular brand of IUCD is often used to reduce heavy bleeding during periods. 

We fit both copper and Mirena coils.  Copper coils are fully funded and Mirena coils, in some cases, are funded. Please make an appointment with a doctor to discuss this further.

We also fit and remove Jadelle implants. This is a relatively simple and safe procedure. 

Other gynaecological procedures include pipelle biopsies (taking tissue from the uterus walls) to ensure healthy tissue. This procedure is often undertaken for irregular vaginal bleeding in any age group.  The procedure is fully funded.
