Order the Oral Oral Contraception Pill Online

Here you can order the contraceptive pill online both safely and securely. We offer both the contraceptive pill also known as the “combined pill” and the mini pill. Both pills contain hormones that help prevent ovulation, thicken the mucus in the neck of the womb and thin the lining of the womb. Together these factors prevent pregnancy 99% of the time.

Taking your pill

Take the pill like you normally would. In general, combined pill brands come in packets of twenty-one. Each day for twenty-one days take one of the pills until you stop the treatment for 7 days. After your 7-day break start another pack. Some brands have a pill for each day of the month and so come with twenty-one active pills and 7 fake or sugar pills. This means that you still take a pill each day and stay in the routine of doing so.

Continue to take your mini-pill as you always have. With the mini-pill you take a pill each day and when one pack is complete you start the next pack.

How your pill works

This contraceptive can work in a few ways:

  • It stops ovulation
  • It thickens the lubricant in the cervix in order to cause the sperm difficulty reaching the womb and causing fertilisation
  • It reduces the womb lining to lower the chance of a fertilised egg attaching to the womb wall

Pills that are progesterone only work in a number of different ways, including:

  • Thickening the secretion at the cervix which makes it hard for any sperm to reach any eggs
  • Thinning the inside layer of the womb reduces the chance of fertilisation
  • There are progesterone only medications which are able to stop ovulation
What if I miss a pill?

If you fail to take a pill there is the potential of pregnancy if you have unprotected sex. Each brand of the pill should come with a leaflet with advice about what to do in the instant of a missing pill.

Are there any side-effects?

Although only a minor percentage of woman on the pill suffer any unwanted reactions, they still can occur. Headaches, nausea, lessened sex drive, sore breasts, mood changes and skin changes can all occur. Other, rarer side-effects are blood clots (lungs/legs) and raised blood pressure. There may be more chance of cervical and breast cancer may also occur with the contraceptive pills. The leaflet inside your particular brand box will describe any side effects specific to your pill.

The majority of women do not suffer from side-effects with this product. Yet, a minor amount of females do experience a lower sex drive, breast discomfort, acne and mood swings. Furthermore, there is an increased risk that if any pregnancy does occur the egg that has been fertilised will occur within the fallopian tubes, causing an ectopic condition.

Alternatives to oral contraception

Condoms can be the most readily available and easiest to use of alternative contraceptives, and also help to prevent STI's.

Alternative types of contraception include intrauterine devices (IUDs), depot injections and contraceptive implants

Checking your health whilst taking oral contraception

If using oral contraception you must check certain health areas:

Checking your blood pressure: Oral contraceptives (pills) can cause high blood pressure, so get your nurse or GP to look at this annually. The majority of pharmacies are able to do this free of charge, so you don't always need to go to your GP.

Screening for cervical cancer: Those that are twenty-five and over are advised to have regular smear tests to make sure you do not have cancer of the cervix. This is applicable to every female, even if you are not on contraceptive medication. Visit a doctor or nurse and have a test.

Screening for sexual health: Oral contraceptives do not stop STIs, so it is important to have regular checks. Condoms should also be used if you are worried about STIs.

Telling your GP

When taking any medication we advise communicating this to your doctor. When filling out your medical history form we will ask for details about your current doctor so we can get in touch with them. We will not contact them if you do not want us to.
