Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 Update: We're open for a range of services during the Level 4 lockdown. Use the Ask for an Appointment to get a phone appointment with us during this time. Please note that we will not be offering phone appointments over the Easter Weekend (10-13 April). 

We will be able to help with: emergency contraception prescriptions, contraceptive pill repeats (and some contraceptive pill starts) and abortion information.

If you are due for your depo provera jab or for your implant to be changed, we will give you a prescription for the pill until we're able to do face-to-face appointments again. 

If you have an appointment booked with us in the next month, we will be in touch with you to reschedule.

Due to infection control requirements we are unable to provide any face-to-face consultations in our clinics during the lockdown.

Schools, principals and teachers: Our Navigating the Journey sexuality education resources are available for just $25 (that's half-price) until the end of April. Our resource shop is closed for the duration of the lockdown but these e-resources are available for purchase.

This page explains what to expect at your first appointment. Our doctors and nurses are specialists and are able to talk to you about any sex related topics. 


When you arrive at our clinic, you will be greeted by a medical receptionist. They will ask for your name and may check your details are still correct and up-to-date. 

Once your details are confirmed you can take a seat in our waiting area until the doctor or nurse is ready to see you. 

You are more than welcome to take a free information pamphlet from our reception area home with you.


Our nurses and doctors are specialists in sexual and reproductive health and are able to talk to you about any sex related topics.

They will ask you about your health history as this may affect the advice they give you.

For example, if you are a smoker, they may suggest a different type of contraception for you than if you are a non-smoker.

They will ask about your sexual behaviour. All sex is normal but some kinds of sex are riskier than others. 

They can help you understand the risks so you can make your own decisions. 


We think it's great if you can talk to someone close to you about sex, however we don't share any of your information with anyone unless you want us to or unless we think you’re at risk or you may hurt someone else.

We will always tell you if we are going to share your information with someone who is able to help you.
