The doctors of Nuvo Health are experienced in all areas of women’s health and are committed to providing a high-quality level of care to women of all ages. With a focus on preventative care – you can be assured that your ongoing physical, emotional, and social well-being at any stage of your life are our top priority. Almost half of the team at Nuvo Health Medical Centres are female if having a same-sex consultation is preferable to our female patients.
Nuvo Health’s doctors are all experienced in the management and treatment of Women’s Health, however some of our practitioners have additional training and a particular interest in this area. We are able to offer services and advice around contraception, bleeding issues, menopause, sexual dysfunction and sexual health. We also offer services around maternal, antenatal and postpartum care. All consultations are provided with the utmost focus on patient care, comfort and sensitivity in mind.
Cervical Cancer Screening:
The Cervical Screening Test (CST) is now the recommended method for detecting cervical cancer. It is similar to the Pap smear and is performed during a speculum examination.
The collected cells are tested for HPV. If the results are normal, it is recommended to repeat the CST every five years. Why wait? Vaccination against HPV is recommended and is available at Nuvo Health Clinics.
1 in 7 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, making it essential for women over the age of 40 to regularly perform self-examinations or come for a screening.
We understand each patient is unique, therefore the doctors at Nuvo Health Medical centers can assist in choosing the right contraception method for your needs. Aside from oral contraceptive medications, there are also long-acting and reversible options available. These include Implanon NXT® and IUD’s. To discuss options further, book an appointment with us.
Family Planning & Fertility:
Our doctors help women make important decisions about fertility and family planning. Nuvo Health is able to provide appropriate assessments and testing around fertility and address any concerns you may have about planning a family.

Menopause is different for each woman. Whilst undergoing menopause, you may experience a variety of changes and concerns surrounding your health. We recommend that if you’re experiencing any negative effects or have concerns – don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. On average, women experience menopause at 50, but it can happen earlier or later.
Evaluation and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs):
STIs, or sexually transmitted infections, should be tested for regularly, and treated immediately. If left untreated, STIs can lead to serious health complications such as pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and even certain cancers. Additionally, untreated STIs can be easily spread to sexual partners, leading to a wider spread of the infection. Prompt treatment can not only protect your own health, but also prevent the spread of the infection to your partner. Early detection and treatment can also ensure that the infection is treated effectively and prevent long-term health issues.
