1800 My Options provides sexual and reproductive health information to Victorian women, including where they can access contraception services, abortion and other related services. 1800 My Options does not provide medical, clinical, counselling or financial services.
Health professionals can be involved with the service in a number of ways:
1800 My Options maintains a database of clinical and other sexual and reproductive health service providers, who consent to have their information provided to Victorian women.
The storage of information within the 1800 My Options database complies with national privacy legislative requirements as well as with Victorian State Government data security requirements.
Service providers have the option of being publicly listed on a website, or having their information kept privately, and only made available to women under certain circumstances. More information about the database can be found on the online registration form.

In cases where women have complex medical conditions, please consider direct referral to the most appropriate tertiary health services. Health professionals are encouraged to display posters and other promotional materials in their services (waiting rooms, notice boards, etc) to empower women to access the sexual and reproductive health information that they need.
