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.

Menopause

Te ruahinetanga

If you’re experiencing symptoms of menopause our nurses and doctors can provide advice.

Menopause is commonly experienced between the ages of 45-55 but can happen earlier.

A full history is taken at appointments followed by a discussion of changes or problems for the client at this time of her life.

The nurse or doctor may discuss available treatments to control symptoms with you.

These treatment options may include:

  • Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
  • natural therapies
  • menopause implant (a method of hormone delivery).

Talk to our nurses or doctors for help and advice on hot flushes, heavy bleeding and other mid-life issues.

Family Planning has clinics located throughout New Zealand. Use the clinic finder to find your nearest clinic.
