Dr Suzana is committed to helping women manage their fertility with a range of different contraception options. There are many different types of contraception that Dr Suzana will explain to her patients during their consultation.
A number of factors will impact a woman’s decision to use contraceptives, and Dr Suzana is discreet and understanding about all of these factors.
When it comes to contraceptive methods, it is essential that Dr Suzana understands the reason why you are choosing to manage your fertility. Whether it’s to manage hormonal factors, health factors or lifestyle factors, Dr Suzana will work with you to find the right treatment for you.
We offer non-hormonal, hormonal, and permanent contraception options, so you can rest assured that you have access to a full spectrum of contraceptive choices. Dr Suzana also works with long-term reversible contraception, such as Mirena and Implanon.
Patients can undergo these long-term contraception options in Dr Suzana's practice rooms, however some selected patients may need to be admitted into day surgery for light anaesthetic.
All women experience menopause differently. While some are relatively unaffected by symptoms, others may experience minor changes, or even very noticeable changes that can interrupt their life. Menopause represents the relative end of a woman’s reproductive capacity, and as this change begins a woman’s hormone levels will also change, with a wide range of symptoms.
The symptoms of menopause and hormonal changes can be extremely varied from woman to woman. Some of these symptoms can last for years, which is why Dr Suzana provides a range of treatment options and menopause counselling.
Some menopause symptoms include:
- Hot flushes
- Muscle and joint pain
- Increased sweating
- Anxiety and depression
- Loss of energy and concentration
- Vaginal dryness
If you are experiencing these symptoms and believe it may be caused by entering menopause, Dr Suzana can formulate a treatment plan that suits you.
Many women experience chronic pelvic pain, which can be caused by a number of different factors.
Some concerns that can cause pelvis pain include:
Unfortunately ongoing pelvic pain can impact a woman’s physical health, in addition to their emotional health. The symptoms of pelvic pain are not limited to just the pelvic area. Many women can experience pain passing urine, during intercourse, when opening the bowels, a shooting pain in the back or legs and more.
Many women experience pelvic pain without diagnosis for many years. Dr Suzana is highly trained in the diagnosis of pelvic pain and other gynaecological issues, so you can rest assured you will receive skilled and accurate care. The assessment of pelvic pain may ensue over a number of consultations and may involve a number of different diagnostic techniques.
Acute pelvic pain can develop over a long period of time and thus treatment can often be a long-term process. Some treatment options that Dr Suzana can perform include surgery or medical therapy, however during your consultations Dr Suzana will work with you to tailor a treatment plan that best suits your concerns.
A laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgery performed to manage endometriosis, Fibroids and uterine dysfunctions. Dr Suzana is a highly experienced Obstetrician and Gynaecologist who works with experienced sub-specialists in the field in order to achieve the best outcomes for her patients.
This procedure facilitates the visualisation of your internal organs to identify concerns such as ovarian cysts and endometriosis, as well as a number of other concerns.
There are a number of reasons why a doctor may suggest laparoscopic surgery, such as pelvic pain, pelvic masses, to assess your fertility and more. Contact Dr Suzana for a full explanation of laparoscopic surgery and the need for it.
CST is the new PAP Smear
A CST (Cervical Screening Test) with Dr Suzana involves an examination and screening of the cervix.
The Cervical Screening Test is more accurate at detecting human papillomavirus (known as HPV). The Pap test used to look for cell changes in the cervix, whereas the new Cervical Screening Test looks for HPV which can lead to cell changes in the cervix.
HPV is a common virus that can cause changes to cells in your cervix, which in rare cases can develop into cervical cancer.
Once you have had your first Cervical Screening Test, you will only need to have one every five years instead of every two, if your results are normal. Dr Suzana will discuss this further at your initial consultation.
