Contraception / Birth Control

A range of female contraception options that’s right for you and your body.

Personalised Advice For

Female Contraception

Contraception, or birth control, is the prevention of a pregnancy by interrupting the process of conception and implantation of the fertilised egg.

The type of birth control you choose can have a big role in your reproductive health. Your contraceptive options will vary depending on the stage you’re at in your reproductive life, and will change depending on your unique personal situation.

We specialise in female contraception methods, and are here to help you make the choice that’s best for your body.

Types OF


Iud Insertion And Removal

An IUD is an intrauterine contraceptive device to help prevent pregnancy. We specialise in safe IUD insertion and removal.


A small, flexible rod about the size of a matchstick that’s inserted just under the skin on the underside of your arm. It slowly releases a progestogen hormone into your bloodstream, and can prevent pregnancy for up to 3 years.

Tubal Ligation

Tubal ligation is a permanent method of female contraception, also known as sterilisation, or more commonly ‘having your tubes tied’.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I book my first appointment?

You’ll need to see your GP prior to your first appointment to get a referral. You can book in an appointment with Dr Nathan prior to seeing your GP, however you must have the referral by the time of your first appointment.

What happens at my first appointment?

At your first appointment we take a comprehensive personal and family history, and provide you with the opportunity to discuss all aspects of your reproductive health. We’ll also perform any necessary tests, and then discuss your contraceptive options in detail.

What should I bring to my appointment?

Please bring your referral, your medicare card and private health insurance details, and any previous results for pathology or ultrasound.

Can I have my IUD inserted at my appointment?

Depending on your circumstances, and if it’s suitable for your situation, Dr Nathan can perform an IUD insertion in the rooms. If preferred, or for patients who haven’t had a previous vaginal birth, we can book you in for a day procedure.

We’ll send you information prior to your visit in preparation for your IUD insertion.

The best time for insertion of an IUD is during the first 5 days of your cycle.

Give us a call at reception, and speak with Justine or Sally to discuss any specific questions you might have.

What if I have my period on the day of my appointment?

This depends on whether your appointment is for a consultation or a procedure. As a courtesy, we prefer if you notify us ahead of time if you have your period. We can then tell you the best course of action. This may mean we’ll need to reschedule your appointment to another day.
