Contraceptive coil (IUD) Fitting / replacement
You have requested to go on our list for a coil to be fitted/changed ; before we can put you on our list can you please read and complete the enclosed questionnaire and return to the surgery for the attention of Debbie Urry.
The questionnaire is self-explanatory and if needed please make an appointment with of our doctors /nurses
An appointment for IUD insertion is 30 minutes with both a nurse and a doctor which is the equivalent to 6 normal appointments, so patients who do not attend their appointments without warning are preventing another lady from receiving contraception or 6 patients who are unwell being cared for.
You will not go on the list until the questionnaire has been completed.
There are very few people for whom intra uterine contraception is not suitable but prior to fitting some do need further investigations. To try to save you time by avoiding unnecessary appointments we are using this questionnaire.
If you wish to discuss your contraceptive choices further please make an appointment with one of our doctors who specialises in contraception and sexual health : Dr M Lovis, Dr K Long and Dr K Chan.
