I offer a wide variety of contraceptive and family planning options. from LARCs to diaphragm fittings and sterilisation advice.
I am highly experienced at Mirena and Copper intrauterine device (IUD) insertion and IUD removal, including removal of threadless IUDs. For added reassurance all IUDs are imaged on ultrasound after insertion.
As a MSD accredited Implanon trainer I am also an expert Implanon inserter and remover (including Jadelle removal).
I hold a diploma from the Royal Colleges of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (UK) and provide high quality GP Antenatal Shared Care in conjunction with:
I also have on-site ultrasound if needed during a consultation
I am a firm believer in that no women has to put up with period problems. Heavy, irregular, painful and even absent periods can be managed.
I can also help with other women's health conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, menopause, breast disease and cervical screening.
I provide a non-judgmental and confidential approach to sexual health problems and STI testing and treatment for all groups.
I am an accredited HIV S100 prescriber and prescribe Pre-Exposure HIV Prophylaxis (PrEP)
I encourage men not to neglect their health. Problems such as erectile dysfunction can not only be distressing but can also be a hallmark of other health problems. I can help with conditions such as erectile dysfunction , premature ejaculation and lower urinary tract symptoms / prostate problems.
As a family planning doctor one of my favourite consults is planning pregnancies. A preconception visit is recommended to any women who is planning a pregnancy. If you have been struggling to conceive, there is a lot that I can do in terms of advice and investigation before needing to see a gynaecologist.
