Family planning and contraception advice is available, as well as menopausal advice including Hormone Replacement Therapy.

Breast examinations are provided and breast self-examination is taught. It is recommended that all women have an annual breast examination by a doctor, and examine their own breasts every month. All women over 50 should have a mammogram every two years, which can be arranged by your doctor.

Cervical screening has changed in Australia. The Pap test has been replaced with a new Cervical Screening Test every five years. Speak to your GP to find out how this affects you.
