What is the oral contraceptive pill?
As the name suggests, oral contraception pills are tablets taken regularly by mouth. There are many different names used for the oral contraceptive pill. Sometimes they are referred to by their different brand names such as Cilest or Marvelon. Sometimes you may hear them referred to as 'the pill', 'mini pill' or 'birth control'. Most accurately though, they are described by their active ingredients.
The combined pill (also know as 'the pill') contains two synthetic versions of the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone. It works to stop ovulation and also prevents sperm from getting to an egg. It also stops fertilised eggs from being able to implant in the womb. The combined pill either comes in strips of 28 - where a pill is taken daily, or strips of 21 - where 7 pill free days are observed per cycle.
The progesterone-only pill (also known as POP or 'the mini pill') only contains one hormone, namely progesterone. More accurately, it actually contains a synthetic version of this female hormone called progestin. It works to stop ovulation, prevents sperm from reaching an egg and stops fertilised eggs from implanting in the womb. Mini-pills come in strips of 28 tablets, one to be taken daily.
We provide this regulated, specialist service for women aged 18 or over who are currently taking a contraceptive pill.

Medicines at a glance
|Combined Pill||Progesterone-only Pill|
All medication can cause side effects. We have only listed a few to be aware of. Details of all side effects, including rare side effects to be aware of, are listed in the patient information leaflet (PIL). When completing your medical questionnaire, it is very important that you answer the questions truthfully. This is to ensure your doctor has a full picture of your medical history before prescribing. List all medicines you are already taking, including non-prescription and herbal medicines.
This service is for patients that have already stabilised on their contraceptive pill. You should not use this service if you are pregnant, have been told in the past that you should not take the contraceptive pill or are under 18 years old.
Other methods of contraception include the coil, contraceptive implants and barrier methods such as condoms. Please be aware that the contraceptive pill will not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Medicines are only intended to be used by the person they are prescribed for. Do not give your prescribed medicine to anybody else, even if they have the same symptoms as you. Medicines can be harmful if used by anybody other than the person they have been prescribed for.

Your medical consultation and registration is free and you are under no obligation to purchase any treatment after your consultation.
In order to manage some conditions online, we are required to inform your GP about the medicine you have been prescribed. This will be clearly highlighted during your consultation.

How effective is the contraceptive pill?
The contraceptive pill is over 99% effective if taken as instructed.
How will your doctor know which contraceptive pill you want?
During the online medical questionnaire you will be asked the name of your current contraceptive pill or the pill you have taken in the past. We will provide you with a list of the most common contraceptive pills used in the UK. Your doctor can prescribe all combined and mini-pills that are commonly used in the UK. Your doctor will not prescribe you any contraceptive pills that are not licensed in the UK.
Can I get a repeat prescription?
Your doctor can offer you ongoing prescriptions. After your initial three month medication, you can request a further prescription but you must have your blood pressure checked before requesting another prescription. Your doctor needs to be sure that your contraceptive pill hasn't raised your blood pressure. You do not need to visit a doctor; most pharmacies will check your blood pressure for free.
