At last, promise of a 1/3 lower hormone dose intrauterine #contraceptive   device (IUD) for women as an alternative to "The Pill". This study shows the effectiveness of this type of #contraception  is 99.8%. Especially beneficial for women who have never had a baby is the smaller size of this #IUD , which can be inserted through the cervix more easily. Ask your doctor for more details.

On the #goldcoast  last week, 2 cases of #measles  were confirmed. This highly-contagious, vaccine-preventable disease causes flu-like symptoms with sore eyes and a rash and can cause serious complications for some people. Measles is usually imported from less developed countries and spreads quickly to people who aren't vaccine-protected (babies, children never vaccinated, anyone with a compromised immune system). #queenslandhealth  provides a free booster #vaccine  for adults who didn't get a second #MMR   #immunisation  at school. If you have overseas #travel  plans or think you may not be #immune , call Health HQ on 07 5526 4444 to get your free measles vaccine.
