INTRAUTERINE CONTRACEPTION & CONTRACEPTIVE IMPLANTS
Intrauterine Contraception (such as the Levornogestrel Mirena or Kyleena IUS, and the Copper IUD) and the Etonogestrel (Nexplanon) contraceptive implant provide superior, fully reversible, long-acting, protection against unplanned pregnancy. Referral or prior Birth Control Consult at LWH is required.
BIRTH CONTROL & CONTRACEPTIVE COUNSELLING
There have never been more safe and effective birth control methods for women to allow us to decide whether or when we wish to have a pregnancy: IUDs, contraceptive implants, injectable contraception, birth control pills, patches and rings, and emergency contraception. A family planning consultation at Liberty Women's Health will help you understand the options, and support you in making the choice that is right for you.
Let's talk about periods! Crimson Tide, Aunt Flo, Time of the Month, Shark Week... Your period shouldn't feel like a "curse," because it isn't! Too many women suffer needlessly with period problems that negatively impact their quality of life, and may even have an undiagnosed medical condition that can improve with treatment. Visit us for an assessment if you have heavy menstrual bleeding, painful cramps, pelvic pain, or absent or irregular periods. (Appointments by referral)
VAGINITIS & VULVAR CONCERNS
Vulvar swelling and rashes, vaginal irritation, abnormal discharge, and pelvic discomfort and pain with sex are common symptoms for many women. These require medical attention to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment. Over-the-counter products and home remedies can make things worse. If your are concerned about your symptoms, visit us for an initial assessment and treatment. (Appointments by referral)
MEDICAL WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
Obesity is a chronic illness with pervasive effects on patients’ cardiac risk, bone & joint health, cancer risk, mental health, and many more! Do you want to be better able to keep up with your kids? Do you want less back pain? Do you want improved intimacy? Our approach to weight management is less about chasing a number on the scale, and more about setting functional goals.
Neuromodulators work by temporarily relaxing muscles, so that wrinkles soften and lines are greatly reduced. Botox treatments target dynamic wrinkles such as frown (glabellar) lines, crow’s feet, and forehead creases, to prevent and soften wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Fees for cosmetic neuromodulator treatments are not covered by OHIP.
PERIMENOPAUSE & MENOPAUSE TREATMENT
The hormonal fluctuations during perimenopause and menopause are often associated with hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, discomfort with sex, insomnia, low libido and mental health changes that can significantly affect a woman's quality of life. There are safe and effective local and systemic, hormonal and non-hormonal therapies that can help you feel more like yourself during the transition. (Appointments by referral)
ACNE & SKIN HEALTH
Acne is more than skin deep, and the effects can persist after blemishes have cleared: it may leave permanent scarring and dark marks, there are often significant emotional effects for those who experience acne. Book an appointment for an assessment of your acne concerns and to initiate a treatment plan that's right for you. Fees for medical skin health consultations are covered by OHIP.
Premenstrual Syndrome, and its more severe form, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) are cyclical, hormone-based mood disorder with symptoms arising during the premenstrual, or luteal phase of the menstrual cycle, usually diminishing within a few days of menstruation. While connected to the menstrual cycle, they are not a hormone imbalance. We offer diagnosis and treatment.
