Phenix Health and CaptureCARE have partnered to offer the first dedicated telehealth care service for women suffering sexual health and reproductive issues.

Phenix has a long association with offering unique models of care and is very much focused on providing dedicated care by GPs, Nurse Practitioners and other allied healthcare services.

CaptureCARE is a unique Telehealth Patient Monitoring Service conducted by a team of nurses passionate about Women’s Health and Cannabinoid Medicine.

Endometriosis & Menopause are two of our key focus areas and are the leading conditions faced by women right across Australia. Historically, the management of these conditions and experiences have not been prioritised the way they should be, and we’re committed to changing that.

Because these issues are painful and hard to diagnose and provide solutions, we provide a service that embodies a thorough consultation process with the health care professional who will offer treatment, lifestyle and long term follow up care through the Capture Care team.

Women’s Health Conditions

Endometriosis, dysmenorrhoea (painful periods), and dysparuenia (painful sex) can all contribute to ongoing pain and discomfort for women, and treatment options can be limited, ineffective or poorly-tolerated.

Similarly, women experiencing peri-menopause or menopause are often left without effective options for symptom management.

Lack of effective treatment options for common gynaecological conditions have led women to seek alternatives, with cannabis becoming an increasingly popular choice.

Cannabis Use in Women

Research from UNSW and Western Sydney University states women using illicit cannabis to manage symptoms associated with endometriosis found it to be effective for pain, anxiety, depression, sleep, nausea and gastrointestinal upsets.

(Sinclair et al. (2021) Effects of cannabis ingestion on endometriosis-associated pelvic pain and related symptoms.)

Research also states that 72% of survey respondents chose to use illicit cannabis to manage their endometriosis symptoms. 

(Sinclair et al. (2021) Cannabis Use for Endometriosis: Clinical and Legal Challenges in Australia and New Zealand)

 

Endometriosis

Good News:

Cannabinoid medicine provides a safe, legal alternative to illicit cannabis and is available through qualified Australian medical practitioners.

Cannabinoids found in readily available medicinal cannabis products may assist in the management of symptoms associated with endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, and premenstrual syndrome.

Cannabinoid medicine may also assist in the management of peri-menopausal and menopausal symptoms including anxiety, vaginal dryness, hot flushes, poor concentration and insomnia.
