Sexual Health and Pregnancy

Contraception

We offer a wide range of contraceptive services including coils and Implanon, as well as the contraceptive pill, patches and injections (Depo Provera) or Sayana Press.  Our family planning nurse will be able to assist with advice on this, and will inform you of any follow up appointments required.

 

Sexual Health

Sexual Health issues can also be discussed in confidence with our specialist nurse or with a GP.  Some common sexually transmitted infections can be screened without the need for a medical examination.  Please ask for further information.  In some cases the GP or nurse may need to examine you.  Should this be the case, you will be offered a chaperone in accordance with General Medical Council best practice guidelines.

 

Cervical Smears

A smear test is recommended every 3 years in Scotland for women aged 25-49, and every 5 years for women aged 50-64 who have ever been sexually active. You will be recalled automatically for your appointments.  All patients are informed by letter of their smear results.

Our practice nurses offer appointments at various times throughout the week for this test, and for the added convenience of working females and young mothers there are also clinics running at weekends at local hubs.  Please click on the following link for more information on these, and to book an appointment at one of the hubs:
