Menopause is the natural cessation of a woman’s menstrual cycle. It usually occurs naturally between the ages of 45 – 55 and marks the end of fertility.
All women will experience menopause differently, genetics and underlying health conditions all play their part making individual treatment and care plans important to the process as each woman transitions through this phase of their life.
There are many contraceptive choices and methods available to Australian women, from the contraceptive pill to contraceptive implants, contraceptive injections to diaphragms and caps and intrauterine devices and systems.
To know what’s best for you, including a discussion about the use of condoms as the only contraceptive that can provide some protection against STIs speak with us at High Street Medical Clinic where your GP can inform and guide you.
Antenatal Shared Care
Shared maternity care is an option for healthy women with low risk pregnancy to have some of their pregnancy care shared between their regular High Street Medical Clinic doctor, their hospital and/or midwife.
When antenatal care is shared it provides a broader understanding of patient needs through shared communication and management of the pregnancy and postnatal care.
Your regular GP knows your health better than anyone, so their inclusion in antenatal care can make a lot of sense.
