Default Contraceptive injection in Qatar

Maybe a bit of an odd question..

My wife has a regular contraceptive injection which she has done in the UK at her local doctors surgery.

I have private healthcare as part of my package but it states that it does not cover contraceptives. I have no issue with paying for this myself but I want to know If this is available in Qatar?

Are there doctors surgeries as in the UK?

Thanks in advance

James

I'd call up some of the hospitals and ask specifically. Finding decent gynaes in the Middle East is a nightmare, a lot of medicines, particularly hormones, are banned. I even had trouble getting an implant out - took 6 weeks and almost a trip back to UK to find someone.

Not much help, but she can get them in Dubai (as my wife does).

I guess if you can get them here, you should be able to get them there.

Please excuse my ignorance but by gynaes I assume you mean a gynaecologist?

would you need to get the injection from here in Qatar? It's usually in her leg lol

Mogs - loads of stuff you can get in Dubai you can't get in Oman, Qatar, Kuwait.... I know men who need male version of HRT who have to regularly fly to Dubai to pick up their prescription. (and yes I fully appreciate that can be ripped into piss take wise, but I'm saying it in innocence ).

Hence my opening comment, "not much help"
