Incontinence Treatment with EMSELLA
Say NO to incontinence & intimate discomfort!
A breakthrough treatment for incontinence and confidence. This unique technology revolutionises the women’s intimate health and wellness category by providing those suffering from incontinence with a completely non-invasive option.
Non-scalpel Vasectomy (Men’s Health)
Vasectomy is the common name for male sterilisation – a permanent method of contraception
We use an open-ended no-scalpel technique, proven to have the least risk of side effects and complications. By using a minimally invasive approach, the vasectomy is performed through a tiny opening in the front part of the scrotum. There is one tiny hole through which the surgeon does the vasectomy.
The operation takes about 20 minutes and after your Vasectomy you can be totally spontaneous! You will feel a bit sore for a few days but the overwhelming majority of men have a fairly easy and straight-forward recovery. After the short recovery period, and once your semen becomes clear of sperm (usually around 3 months), you and your partner will be able to stop using other birth control methods. We will let you know when your semen test gives the “all clear”.
Compared to sterilisation in a woman, vasectomy is a very quick, easy and inexpensive procedure that can be done in our clinic, without the hassle and expense of a hospital inpatient stay.
Intrauterine Device insertion and removal (Women’s Health)
Intrauterine Devices (IUDs) provide SAFE, RELIABLE and very EFFECTIVE birth control
We recommend the use of an Intra-Uterine device (IUD) for most women, as it is a “set and forget” contraception, has a low incidence of problems and is highly effective.
The contraceptive effect of an IUD is immediately reversible when it is removed, so it’s particularly good for women who have not had children yet. In Australia, the hormonal IUD is subsidised by the government as a treatment for troublesome menstruation and contraception. They last for 5 years, or 7 years if inserted over the age of 45 years. Non-hormonal IUDs are not subsidised but are still cost-effective, as they provide long-lasting birth control for 5 or 10 years.
Modern designs make IUDs a great choice for women who want a “fit and forget” form of contraception. If you wish to have your IUD removed before its due date, it is very easy and the contraceptive effects are immediately reversed. So pregnancy could occur as soon as the IUD has been removed.
