Women’s Clinic Overview
With the busy lifestyle we live, we often forget to take good care of ourselves. At Times GP, our friendly female GPs are happy to provide a wide range of Women’s Health and Sexual Health services in sensitive manner that is tailored to your individual need.
Family planning, pregnancy cares, and menopause.
Preventive Health – Cervical Cancer, Breast Cancer
We are gentle and skilled with performing:
- Cervical Screening Test (previously Pap Smear) – screening for cervical cancer
- Breast check – can also arrange breast ultrasounds and mammograms.
- Human Papillomatous Virus (HPV) vaccines – Gardasil 9
Menstrual problems (Period issues)
Many women would experience period issues at some point in time, and a “normal” menstrual cycle means something different for every woman. We manage menstrual disorders including:
- Painful / Heavy periods
- Irregular periods / Unusual bleeding patterns – between periods, after sexual intercourse
- Missed or late period
- No periods
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) – eg. mood changes, breast tenderness, acne, cramps
- Menstrual migraines
For cultural, religious or lifestyle reasons, we all have different views on contraception. Though most women feel more empowered when they can plan how many children they wish to have and when.
At Times GP, we give you comprehensive advice, exploring the pros & cons of each, on many contraceptive options available – and together we can decide what is most suitable for you:
- Morning after pill
- Oral contraceptive pill
- Depot injection
- Implanon – we do insertion and removals
- Mirena IUD, Copper IUD, the new Kyleena IUD (Intrauterine device) – we do insertion and removals

Being aligned with Mater Mothers’ Hospital GP Maternity Shared Care Program, we make antenatal care more accessible to you and your growing baby. We will support you and prepare you every step of the way! We also understand breastfeeding can be a struggle for some, our GPs and lactation consultant – Sharon Lau are here to help!
Menopause & Urinary incontinence
Each woman has a different experience when it comes to menopause. Some women have physical symptoms, some have emotional symptoms, many suffer from both.
Urinary Incontinence can vary from recognising the frequent need to rush to toilet urgently, to a small leak on laughing / coughing / exercising, to the complete inability to control your bladder. There are many factors such as pregnancy, childbirth, menopause that can lead to urinary incontinence.
It is therefore important, that we assess severity of your symptoms and tailor the management to your individual needs. By discussing your issues early, we can together prevent these from hindering your lifestyle.
Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are infections that are commonly spread by close sexual contact (vaginal, anal, or oral) or by skin-to-skin contact. Some STIs are “silent” with no symptoms, some have symptoms, some can cause significant health problems – so it is important to have a STI test if you have had unprotected sex. Testing for STI is simple and confidential, and most STIs are easy to treat.
