We know women can put off seeking help for health issues for a long time, particularly if they are very personal or will be complicated to solve. We also find that women can often put children, whānau and general daily life ahead of their own health.
When you come to Oxford Women's Health we will make you as comfortable as possible to talk about your health problem, and help you receive the treatment you need. Your General Practitioner can refer you, or you can request an appointment via phone or our website (a self-referral), with many of our specialists and Allied Health Professionals.
Women of all ages come to us for advice and treatment, including those with endometriosis, painful and heavy periods, fertility issues, breast surgery needs, prolapse, bladder issues and hormonal problems. We can also help if you need to see a pelvic pain specialist or have fibroids treatment.
We understand that you lead a busy life and don't want to spend a lot of time in hospital. So, if you do need surgery as part of treating a health issue, we always aim to use the least invasive options, such as hysteroscopic and advanced laparoscopic surgery (keyhole surgery), when diagnosing and treating you. This minimises your pain and your recovery will usually be quicker.
The services we offer also include Natural Cycle Monitoring and Ovulation Induction with Monitoring. If you've been trying for a little while with no success, a good first step is to try this simple option that helps you understand when you are likely to be ovulating and the best timing for sex. Our experienced fertility nurses are here to help.
Oxford Women's Health is based in the Forté Health building in central Christchurch, offering state-of-the-art hospital facilities and a ground floor café. To make sure women throughout the South Island can benefit from our expertise, we hold specialist satellite clinics in Blenheim, Pegasus, Ashburton, Timaru, Wanaka, Queenstown and Invercargill - not all our services are available at each site but we do welcome appointments via telehealth where appropriate.
