At Northbridge Medical Centre we have specially trained doctors certified in sexual health. Our doctors understand the importance of prioritising contraception for your sexual health and safety. We can assist you with any and all contraceptive needs, including the insertion or removal of the hormonal and non-hormonal intrauterine devices (IUD).
The intrauterine device, or IUD, is a form of contraception in which a T-shaped frame is inserted into your uterus. The hormonal IUD, is made of plastic and releases the hormone progestin to prevent pregnancy. The non-hormonal IUD is made of plastic and copper. The copper is released in small amounts to disrupt the process of conception. Northbridge Medical Centre can assist with the insertion and removal of the hormonal intrauterine device (IUD), and in the removal of non-hormonal or copper intrauterine device (IUD).
