Online Gynaecologist Doctor Consultation

How Do I Book an Online Gynaecologist Doctor Consultation?

The doctors at Instant Consult are not specialists, so it is not possible to have a consultation with a gynaecologist through our platform. However, our doctors are able to refer you to a gynaecologist by issuing you a specialist referral.

While you don’t technically need a referral to see a gynaecologist, it is highly beneficial. A referral from a GP outlines your medical history and health issues, giving the gynaecologist a comprehensive view of your situation.

Referrals are also necessary for Medicare coverage. Most clinics offer bulk-billing options if you have a valid Medicare card. If your private insurance is paying for your consultation, most insurance companies also require referrals to cover your consult.

Doctor online

Booking an online gynaecologist consultation in Australia is pretty straightforward. Plenty of gynaecology clinics offer online consultations, and most of them allow you to book appointments through an app or their website. So, start by checking if your preferred gynaecologist offers online consultations. Then, secure a gynaecologist referral and book a consultation.

No time to get a referral in person? No worries. It’s pretty easy to arrange a gynaecologist referral online at Instant Consult. Just hop on a video call with our doctors, discuss your symptoms, and if everything is in order, you’ll have your referral immediately after. No waiting rooms, no long drives, nor awkward face-to-face conversations about your reproductive health. It’s women’s health care made simple.

What Can a Gynaecologist Help You With?

A gynaecologist can help you with various aspects of women’s health, such as:

  • Menstrual Concerns: Help with irregular periods, painful menstruation, or heavy bleeding.
  • Reproductive Health: Address infertility and other reproductive system issues, offer guidance on contraception, and support through menopause.
  • Gynaecological Disorders: Treat conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), fibroids, endometriosis, and ovarian cysts.
  • Preventive Care: Regular check-ups for early detection of issues like cervical cancer.
  • Sexual Health: Advice and treatment for sexual health concerns.
  • Surgical Procedures: Perform surgeries like laparoscopy or hysterectomy when necessary.

Gynaecologist vs. Obstetrician

Gynaecologists and obstetricians are two specialists who play crucial roles in women’s health. While one is often confused with the other, they actually do different things.

Gynaecologists specialise in the female reproductive system. They deal with a wide range of issues, from infertility to weird vaginal discharge.

Obstetricians, on the other hand, specialise in obstetrics, the branch of medicine that deals with pregnancy and childbirth. That means they’re your go-to if you’re pregnant, especially if it’s a high-risk pregnancy. They provide antenatal to postpartum care and everything in between.

Some doctors, known as OB/GYNs, specialise in both obstetrics and gynaecology. They offer a comprehensive approach to women’s health, covering everything from general gynaecological care to the specific needs of pregnancy and childbirth.

If you’re not sure which specialist you should see, our doctors can help. Before referring you to a gynaecologist, they will assess your symptoms to determine whether you really need to see one or if an obstetrician’s expertise is necessary.
