Clinic 66 provides many gynaecological services including menopause and contraceptive counselling, infertility workup, unplanned pregnancy advice and management, incontinence management and medical treatment for common gynaecological conditions such as endometriosis and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). We have an on-site Sydney gynaecologist, and many GPs who have special skills, qualifications and experience in office-based gynaecology and all aspects of women’s health.
Family planning or contraceptive advice is crucial to help couples time their conception. Many pregnancies are unplanned, and although this may be a happy accident, it may not be, and pregnancy termination needs to be considered. By using effective contraception, you can decide if and when you want to be pregnant. There are many options for effective contraception, and by attending our gynaecology clinic, we can help you make the right choice.
Menstrual problems: If you have troublesome menstruation there are usually simple treatments which can improve your quality of life. Management options may be hormonal, non-hormonal or even lifestyle related.
Menopause management: Menopause is a life stage and many women experience few symptoms. However, if you are unlucky 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.
Vaginal and vulvovaginal 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, and yet are easy to treat if you can attend a women’s health clinic or gynaecology clinic.
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, should they be needed. 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.
Urinary incontinence: Light bladder leakage (LBL) is extremely common and is commonly underdiagnosed, so many women experience embarrassing and debilitating symptoms when they don’t need to. 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), endometrial biopsy, IUD and implant insertion and removal, Dilation and Curettage (D&C), cervical cancer screening (colposcopy and HPV tests), hymenectomy, and Bartholins abscess drainage. D&C 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. Mona Lisa Touch is available for women who would benefit from a non-surgical, non-hormonal approach to menopause.
Our doctors provide consultations and some of them undertake procedures. We also have our own specialist gynaecologists in house. By consulting with our doctors you’ll be guided through what you need, and we will provide you with an in-house or onward referral if necessary.
Sydney has leading specialists in all medical fields, and several fantastic hospitals, should an inpatient stay be required. Many gynaecologists (FRANZCOG – Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists) subspecialise in one particular area e.g. infertility or cancer. Our doctors provide a broad range of gynaecological services at an affordable price. For that reason, many GPs refer directly to us. However, you do not need a referral to see our expert GPs. If you would like to see our in-house specialists, we can provide a referral for you or you can get one from another doctor.
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 should onward referral be necessary, be sure we will recommend the best gynaecologist for your particular needs and provide you with that referral.
