Gynaecare is currently collaborating with Family Planning New South Wales in a study examining bleeding patterns in women who have the contraceptive implant (usually inserted into inner upper arm). Women who have the implant inserted at Gynaecare will be invited to enrol in the study.

Forthcoming research projects include a prospective cohort to follow the post operative course of men who have a vasectomy and a qualitative study of women’s experience of surgical termination of pregnancy.
