IUD Consultations

The IUD is a safe, reliable long-term contraceptive option. Sale Medical Centre is one of the few clinics
in the area which can safely insert and remove IUD's.

What is an IUD?

An intrauterine device (IUD) is a small plastic loop with a nylon string at the end that’s put inside the womb (uterus) by a doctor. It is a convenient, affordable and highly effective method of preventing pregnancy.


What types of IUD are available?

There are 2 types of IUD:


  • Hormonal IUD (Mirena®, Kyleena®)

  • Copper IUD (Multiload®, Copper-T®)

Both types of IUD are available for insertion at Sale Medical Centre.


What are the benefits of an IUD?

  • You won’t have to remember to take something for contraception every day

  • The hormonal IUD will make your periods lighter

  • Medications and natural remedies won’t stop the IUD from working

  • It can work for up to 5 years

  • Quickly reversible: it can be easily taken out by a doctor if you don’t want it any more

How can I arrange to get an IUD

You can call us on 5144 5766 to book an appointment. Please let our reception staff know that you would like to discuss getting an IUD at the time of booking.

During your initial appointment, the doctor or nurse practitioner  will discuss the requirements and risks involved with IUD use, and determine if it is the best contraceptive option for you. A subsequent second appointment will then be required to insert the IUD. You will also need to see the doctor 6 weeks after the procedure to check the IUD’s position and make sure that everything is working as expected.

We can also offer advice on other contraceptive methods such as the contraceptive pill, vasectomy, Implanon and more.
