At Kardinia Health in Belmont, Geelong, we understand that choosing the right birth control method is a personal decision. Among the various contraceptive options available, Intra Uterine Devices (IUDs) have become increasingly popular due to their convenience and high effectiveness. If you are considering an IUD as your preferred contraception, our experienced team is here to provide you with comprehensive IUD insertion services.
Two Types of IUDs: Mirena and Copper
IUDs offer a reliable and safe form of contraception. The two most commonly used types are Hormonal IUDs, such as Mirena or Kyleena, and Copper IUDs. Mirena IUDs release hormones and are especially effective for managing problematic periods. On the other hand, Copper IUDs do not affect hormones but still provide a highly effective form of contraception.
Professional IUD Insertion with Pain Relief
At Kardinia Health, we offer IUD insertions to our patients in a safe and supportive environment. Our skilled practitioners discuss pain relief options in the pre-insertion consultation. Please note that there is a fee for the IUD service, as it is not fully covered by Medicare.
The IUD Insertion Process
The IUD insertion process at Kardinia Health involves three separate appointments to ensure your well-being.
Expert IUD Insertion by Experienced GPs
Not all doctors at Kardinia Health perform IUD insertions. When making your booking, our reception staff will help you find the right GP who is trained and experienced in performing the IUD procedure, ensuring your comfort and satisfaction throughout the process.
Long-Lasting Contraception with Easy Removal
Once inserted, the IUD remains inside the uterus for up to five years before requiring replacement. The IUD removal process is simple and can be completed during a standard consultation.
