IUD information

We usually require two appointments for an IUD (Intrauterine Device) insertion:

  1. The first appointment is to go through your medical history, and provide an explanation about IUDs and what to expect during the insertion procedure.  We also do any pre-testing that is required, and organise a script for your IUD if needed.
  2. The second appointment is when the insertion takes place. Please allow an hour for this appointment.

Please phone us on (08) 9227 6177 between 9:30am and 3:30pm Monday – Friday to discuss available appointment times.

If you have a GP referral (using SHQ template) please call us on 9227 6177 to discuss how to book your IUD insert appointment.

Please note:

  • If you don’t have Medicare, you will pay the ‘SHQ Price’ on table B, the cost of the device, as well as pay privately for any pathology tests, which are usually bulk-billed for Medicare cardholders.
  • If you are experiencing financial difficulties, please discuss this confidentially with your clinician.
  • If you require pain management, please discuss options and costs with your clinician.
