Women’s Health Services
Good sexual health is essential to overall health and wellbeing across every stage of life. It can affect and be affected by other aspects of health, including physical, mental and emotional health.
Sexual health involves being informed regarding protection from and treatment of STI’s as well as respecting the right to healthy relationships, equality and safety within relationships.
STIs can commonly lead to symptoms such as pain with intercourse, pain when passing urine, a change in your normal vaginal discharge or no symptoms at all.
STI testing is encouraged at times such symptoms are noticed; if you have a change in partner; or if you have multiple sexual partners.
Untreated STIs can cause major health problems, like infertility, ectopic pregnancy, pregnancy complications, and pelvic inflammatory disease.
STIs can be transmitted:
- through skin-to-skin contact
- through oral sex
- through sexual intercourse
- from mother to child during pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding.
Some examples include:
- herpes simplex virus
- hepatitis B virus
- hepatitis C virus
- human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection
- human papilloma virus (HPV)
- syphilis. (STI) in A

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
