Women’s Health Services
Advice and treatments provided for Women’s Health Services.
Some women’s health services are available on the NHS and others may only be available as private procedures. But our staff here at Mistrys Pharmacy will discuss treatment options with us so you can make an informed choice.
Along with treatments for sore throat and other minor ailments, a few of the many women’s health services provided by us include:
- Morning after pill: The Morning after pill or Emergency contraception is a tablet that a woman takes to help prevent pregnancy following unprotected sex. Unprotected sex includes when other forms of contraception have failed in some way, such as a condom coming off during sex.
- Period Delay: Period delay is when you choose to delay your normal monthly period. Sometimes, this is done by taking a period delay tablet called Norethisterone.
- Stop Smoking: Our pharmacists are accredited Stop Smoking advisors and can give you counselling about stopping smoking. Plus we can issue you with the appropriate nicotine replacement products from the pharmacy. The anti-smoking products we can provide include nicotine replacement patches, chewing gum, nasal sprays and inhalators to help relieve the craving and withdrawal symptoms associated with stopping smoking. We can tailor a service for you over a twelve-week period to support your needs. We have had many successful patients who have stuck with this plan.
- Cystitis: Different parts of your urinary tract, including your bladder (cystitis), urethra (urethritis), or kidneys (kidney infection) can be affected by urinary tract infections (UTIs). Bladder infections are very common and not normally serious if treated quickly. However, the infection can cause more serious issues if it spreads to the kidneys. Most UTIs though can be easily treated with antibiotics.
- And more…!
We are happy to have a consultation with you to discuss your ailments and suggest a course of action thereafter, no matter what it is that ails you!
