About IUD (Mirena or Copper) Insertion
Dr Alba Spina is trained in IUD (Intrauterine Device) insertion and is very happy to consult with you about whether an IUD is an option for you. IUD insertion can be done at Holland Park Family Medical Centre) in the majority of cases, with only a small percentage of women needing referral to Gynaecological Services for placement.
If you would like to discuss whether IUD is appropriate for you please make an appointment with Dr Spina. If you require a Pap Test or other Medical care as well, please book a longer appointment to ensure there is enough time to cover everything thoroughly.
If you have already had a discussion with Dr Spina about the IUD and are making an appointment for an IUD insertion, please book with reception and tell them it is for an IUD insertion. This is to ensure the Nurses room is booked and a nurse is available for the procedure also. Please don’t forget to bring your IUD to the appointment and make sure your children are cared for during the appointment. It is advised you do not drive for 30 minutes after the procedure. Dr Spina requires payment on the day of the procedure, please see below for schedule of Dr Spina’s fees.
