The costs of a reproductive health consultation will vary from patient to patient. They will depend on the nature of your consultation, whether you have a reproductive health condition or just require a health screen or STI test, and your chosen Ramsay hospital.
You will be advised of your reproductive health consultation cost upon booking.
The costs of your reproductive health consultation may be covered by medical insurance, provided it is considered medically necessary. We advise you get written confirmation from your insurance provider before your consultation.
If you are paying for yourself, we offer a variety of payment options including interest-free finance.
Your recovery will depend on whether you have a reproductive health consultation, test or procedure.
After a health consultation, there is typically no recovery. You will receive advice on your reproductive health.
If you have an STI test, you will not require any recovery time. You can continue your daily routine straight afterwards.
You may have a diagnostic test such as laparoscopy to diagnose and treat endometriosis. Afterwards, you may feel pain and be more emotional. It can take a week or more before you are ready to return to your regular activities. You may have a longer, heavier or more painful period after the surgery.
Men who suffer from erectile dysfunction may have oral medications to improve blood flow to their penis and encourage erections. There is no recovery from this. Alternatively, they may have a penile implant that results in bruising and swelling after the procedure.
Your doctor will discuss your recovery after your reproductive health care.
