Women’s Health Services
There are many contraceptive options available in Australia.
It is important to discuss these options including benefits and side effects, as well as addressing any questions you may have, in order to make an informed decision regarding your choice of contraception. We are able to provide counselling regarding all contraceptive methods.
The most effective forms of contraception currently available in Australia are referred to as LARCs (Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives).
- The Contraceptive Implant
- Hormonal IUD (Mirena/Kyleena)
- Non-Hormonal (Copper) IUD
At The Women’s Health Centre Southern Highlands we are skilled in the insertion and removal of all LARCs.
The Copper IUD is also a very effective emergency contraceptive and can be inserted for this purpose after consultation with the inserting doctor.
An assessment appointment is required prior to an insertion appointment for a LARC.

PELVIC PAIN CLINIC
Endometriosis and pelvic pain are both common conditions in Australia and often underdiagnosed, with many women enduring prolonged periods of abnormal painful symptoms before receiving appropriate help.
As part of the National Endometriosis Action Plan, the Federal Government announced 22 National Centres, of which we are one, that were selected to develop an Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain clinic. The aim of these clinics is to facilitate timely access to assessment, management, referral and support for those experiencing pelvic pain due to, and exacerbated during, their periods.
With one in seven Australian women affected by endometriosis, we are pleased that we are able to expand our services to develop and provide this clinic in the Southern Highlands
