St Clare’s believes in providing women a safe space to discuss and explore methods of contraception. We believe in access to accurate, up-to-date sexual health information. During consultations we can explore what method of contraception best suits the individual and counsel on the benefits and risks of any desired method. Methods available include:
- Combined & progesterone only oral contraception
- Intra-uterine Devices
- Intra-uterine Systems
- Surgical Methods
The World Health Organization defines sexual health as a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination, and violence.
At St Clare’s we are available to discuss any issues regarding sexual health. We remain open minded and committed to guiding our patients on any sexual health issues.
Endometriosis & Pelvic Pain
Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the inner lining of the womb(endometrium) is found elsewhere, usually in the pelvis around the womb, ovaries and fallopian tubes. It is a very common condition, affecting around 1 in 10 women. You are more likely to develop endometriosis if your mother or sister has had it.
Many women suffer from pelvic pain which may be attributed to other conditions aside from endometriosis. It has been shown that women suffering from pelvic pain, regardless of the cause, go on suffering for years until they find the cause of it.
Dr Max Brincat has spent many years working with endometriosis teams in the UK and is passionate about providing women suffering with such problems holistic care. We appreciate that management can be in the form of many different approaches and will aim to tailor it towards the patient. We are also trained in tailoring the investigations to give the best chance of detecting and managing the cause of your symptoms.
At St Clare’s we believe in maintaining the highest standards in scanning by continuously updating our scan machines. We provide a full range of ultrasound scanning in gynaecology and early pregnancy. Ultrasound scanning has become a gold standard imaging method when investigating gynaecological problems.
We are able to offer both two and three-dimensional scans including colour and power Doppler studies.
General gynaecology clinics run through out the week with our specialists in providing consultations on a range of issues. From regular cervical screening and well woman’s clinic to any other specific problem.
Fotona IncontiLase ®
33% of women over the age of 45 suffer from stress incontinence!
IncontiLase® treatment will let you live carefree without constant worry. ?
No costly surgery or side effects, pain free procedure
IncontiLase® is a patent-pending, non-invasive Er:YAG laser therapy for the treatment of mild and moderate stress urinary incontinence, based on non-ablative photothermal stimulation of collagen neogenesis, shrinking and tightening of vaginal mucosa tissue and collagen-rich endopelvic fascia, and subsequently greater support to the bladder.
The indications for IncontiLase therapy are mild and moderate stress- and mixed-urinary incontinence (SUI). Preliminary clinical studies show that it is an efficient, easy-to-perform and safe procedure.
