Contraceptive pill service

You’re about to start a consultation for the contraceptive pill (including the contraceptive ring and patch). When used correctly, the contraceptive pill can be up to 99% effective in preventing pregnancy.

Other contraceptives, like the patch (a patch you wear on your body), and the contraceptive ring (a ring you insert into your vagina), are also extremely effective and great alternatives if you can’t take the pill.

  1. Complete a short medical questionnaire
  2. Highlight a preferred treatment
  3. Doctor reviews your answers and notes your preferred treatment

Important: If your preferred treatment is not clinically suitable, your doctor will offer an alternative or advise you on what to do next.
