MSH (My Sexual Health) team members are healthcare professionals specialising in sexual health who can provide valuable support and assistance to patients seeking information, guidance, and access to contraception methods.
Education and Counselling:
MSH team members can offer comprehensive education about different contraception methods available, including their effectiveness, usage instructions, benefits, and potential side effects. They can help patients make informed decisions by discussing individual health considerations, lifestyle, relationship status, and future family planning goals.
Based on a patient's preferences, medical history, and individual needs, MSH team members can help individuals choose the most suitable contraception method. They can provide information about hormonal methods like birth control pills, patches, injections, or implants, as well as non-hormonal options such as barrier methods (condoms, diaphragms), intrauterine devices (IUDs), fertility awareness methods, or permanent contraception (tubal ligation or vasectomy).
MSH team members can guide patients on proper usage, including instructions on when and how to use different contraception methods effectively. They can address any concerns or questions related to correct usage, potential side effects, interactions with other medications, and what to do in case of missed doses or device-related issues.
Long-Term Contraception Planning:
For individuals interested in long-term contraception options, MSH team members can discuss methods like IUDs or implants that offer extended protection and convenience. They can provide information on the duration of effectiveness, insertion and removal procedures, and potential benefits and considerations for long-term use.
Contraception and Reproductive Health:
MSH team members can discuss how contraception fits a person's reproductive health goals. They can provide guidance on stopping contraception methods when planning for pregnancy and discuss the importance of preconception care to optimise fertility and reproductive health.
Follow-Up and Monitoring:
MSH team members can provide follow-up care to ensure the chosen contraception method works effectively and address any concerns or changes in the individual's sexual health or contraceptive needs. They may also offer regular check-ups to monitor the patient's sexual and reproductive well-being.
Referrals and Additional Support:
MSH team members can refer patients to other healthcare providers or specialists who can provide further assistance or specialised care related to contraception or reproductive health concerns.
Seeking guidance from MSH team members can help individuals make informed decisions about contraception, ensuring they can access safe and effective methods that align with their preferences and lifestyle. The support and information provided by these professionals contribute to improved sexual health, family planning, and overall well-being.
