MJD Health Medical Clinics boasts a large range of family planning options that their experienced general practitioners at Maudsland Medical Centre and Emerald Lakes Medical Clinic can discuss with you and answer any questions or concerns that you may have.

CONTRACEPTION

Some of the more common contraception options that can be considered include:

  • The Contraceptive Pill: A daily tablet that works by inhibiting ovulation
  • Implanon: A small rod that is approximately the size of a matchstick which is inserted just under the skin in your upper arm. Implanon slowly releases progesterone to inhibit ovulation and lasts for three years
  • Mirena Intra Uterine Device (IUD): The Mirena IUD prevents sperm from passing through the cervix and impedes implantation and lasts 5-10 years
  • Emergency Contraception: Commonly known as the Morning After Pill, this medication contains a high dose of progesterone to help prevent a pregnancy. The effectiveness of this pill is higher the sooner it is taken after sexual intercourse.
