IUD Insertion

Learn more about IUDs and other forms of contraception at our blog Let’s Talk About Contraception.

We provide Intrauterine Contraceptive Device (IUD) insertions at our clinic. These are long acting reversible contraceptive coils that we can insert into your womb. They provide a very effective method of contraceptive, help manage heavy periods and can also be beneficial in menopause. Once inserted they can remain in situ for up to 5 years but they can be removed at any stage.

You cannot use our online bookings for Mirena insertion or any of our procedures. This is because they require specific types of appointments with both the Doctor and nurse. All of our procedures also require an initial assessment consultation. The Mirena will not be inserted on the day of your initial assessment.

However you may book an initial consultation online or via telephone to discuss whether or not Mirena is suitable for you, discuss the procedure including risks involved,  organise some pre insertion tests including a pap test (if needed)  and provide you with a script for mirena. If you are not a regular patient of our clinic please bring your most recent pap test results to your initial consultation.

After this initial consultation and assessment our receptionist will help you book in your appointment ideally about day 4 to 5 of your period. If there is no appointment available around this time please contact us to discuss an alternative time.  Please ask at reception for the fees for this procedure.
