Family planning or contraceptive advice
Family planning or contraceptive advice is crucial to help couples time their conception. By using effective contraception, you can decide if and when you want to be pregnant.
There are many options for effective contraception, but its different for everyone. Ee can help you make the right choice.
If you have troublesome menstruation (periods) there are usually simple treatments which can improve your quality of life dramatically.
Management options may be hormonal, non-hormonal or even lifestyle related.
Menopause affects women differently, but if you are unlucky enough to be affected by hot flushes, vaginal dryness, frequent urinary tract infections or other menopause related symptoms, we can help.
Hormonal and non-hormonal treatments are available and proven to be safe and effective.
Many of our GPs are also Fellows of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, are qualified and experienced Proceduralists, and usually specialise in one particular area of sexual and reproductive health.
Our doctors provide a broad range of gynaecological services at an affordable price, which is why many GPs refer directly to us. However, you do not need a referral to see our expert GPs.
Vaginal and vulvo-vaginal problems
If you have vaginal discharge, it may be physiological (normal hormonal response) or related to infection or inflammation.
Depending on the cause, treatments may be indicated.
Irritation of the vulval region may be associated with unusual vaginal discharge.
Vulvovaginal conditions can be very annoying and really impact on your quality of life, but they are generally very easy to treat.
Kegel balls, (aka Ben Wa balls), have been used for centuries to strengthen vaginal and pelvic floor muscles. But Kegel balls do more than just whip your pelvic floor into shape (ask your doctor to tell you about the other great side effects!).
Pelvic Floor problems
After childbirth, and with increasing age, many women benefit from advice regarding pelvic floor exercise.
Poor pelvic floor tone can lead to discomfort and/or bladder leakage. Our women’s health GPs or gynaecologists will assess your pelvic floor and recommend next steps if necessary.
Pelvic floor exercises can be undertaken by yourself, and kegel balls can help with this (we sell these in the clinic) or for more extensive treatment, pelvic floor physiotherapy may be recommended.
Surgery may be an option for poor pelvic floor tone, but is not the first step.
For women who need extra assistance, but who are not suitable or not interested in surgery, we can fit vaginal pessaries.
Light bladder leakage (LBL) is extremely common and is commonly under-diagnosed, so many women experience embarrassing and debilitating symptoms unnecessarily,
LBL may be due to pelvic floor problems, prolapse or overactive bladder.
Clinic 66 provides a patient-centred, shared decision-making model, making sure you understand why you’re experiencing particular symptoms and will provide a range of options for you to choose from.
Clinic 66 provides many office-based gynaecological procedures such as:
Mona Lisa Touch vaginal laser
Termination of pregnancy (abortion)
IUD and implant insertion and removal
Dilation and Curettage (D&C)
Cervical cancer screening (colposcopy and HPV tests)
Bartholins abscess drainage.
Our doctors provide consultations and some of them also undertake procedures.
Clinic 66 is not a hospital: we are an outpatient gynaecology clinic, and we don’t undertake major operations such as hysterectomy or ovary removal.
We do, however, have expert local knowledge and if an onward referral is necessary, we will recommend the best gynaecologist for your particular needs and provide you with a referral.
What is a D&C?
D&C stands for Dilation and Curettage (aka "Curette). It is commonly undertaken after a miscarriage or for retained tissue following a pregnancy. It can however be included as part of management for infertility and abnormal bleeding.
What is MonaLisa Touch?
MonaLisa Touch is high-tech vaginal laser therapy available for women who would benefit from a non-surgical, non-hormonal approach to the vaginal symptoms of menopause (Genitourinary Syndrome of Menopause or Vaginal Atrophy). Find out more >>>
