Implanon

Implanon is a reliable form of long-acting contraception. Implanon is a small plastic rod containing the contraceptive hormone protestogen.

The rod is inserted under the skin in the upper arm using local anaesthetic. It then releases hormones slowly which provides contraception for 3 years.

Implanon is more than 99% effective at preventing conception. Some women will find that their periods stop completely, however some will experience irregular periods. At the end of 3 years, Implanon will need to be removed or replaced.

Several doctors at Total GP Care Prospect and Total GP Care Norwood are trained to insert Implanon. If you have any questions about contraception or Implanon, please book in with your doctor.

For fees involved, please see our Fee Schedule. For further information about contraception, please the Shine SA website.

Mirena

Mirena is a hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) that can provide long-term birth control (contraception). The device is a T-shaped plastic frame that's inserted into the uterus, where it releases a type of the hormone progestin.

The Mirena prevents pregnancy for up to seven years after insertion and helps with menstrual issues

If this is something that you may consider, schedule a long appointment with either Dr Eswari Byka or Dr Devi Radhika Dampanaboina. We provide this service at Total GP Care Prospect and Total GP Care Norwood.

For fees involved, please see our Fee Schedule. For further information about contraception, please the Shine SA website.

Antenatal Shared Care

Antenatal Shared Care is where the antenatal care for pregnant women is shared between the local hospital and a local GP. Antenatal Shared Care is for women who are likely to have an uncomplicated or low risk pregnancy.

If problems do arise during your pregnancy whilst on the Antenatal Shared Care program, you may be transferred back for hospital-based specialist care at the hospital antenatal clinic.

There are many benefits of shared care for both health professionals and expecting mothers. These include:

  • Providing pregnant women with flexibility, choice and continuity of care through pregnancy
  • Catering for the preferences and needs of women from culturally diverse backgrounds
  • Enhancing the skills of GPs caring for women during pregnancy
  • Promoting communication between GPs and the participating hospitals.

If you are interested in the Antenatal Shared Care Program, please arrange a long scheduled appointment with Dr Loan Duong.
