Once all your administration is completed i.e. admission forms filled out, you will be accepted for the procedure (subject to whether you have your Pap Smear results).
If you have your Pap Smear and other results available, you will be checked by the operating Doctor who will review your medical history and may conduct an ultrasonic scan (which is included in the cost).
The Doctor will answer any questions you may have about the procedure, the scan or any other concerns.
If you choose to have this procedure under anaesthetic, you will then meet with the Anaesthetist. Following this, you will go to theatre for your procedure, which takes about ten minutes. If you choose general anaesthesia you will be put to sleep for the procedure, and then awaken in the recovery room.
The procedure is quick and safe with low risks involved.
This may sting a little and once the anaesthetic has taken effect the doctor will insert the device containing the plastic implant just below the skin. A dressing and bandage is applied which should remain in place for at least 24 hours.
Contraceptive injections are administered with an injection into the arm.
All procedures are quick and safe.
