Key Information

What is the combined pill?

The combined contraceptive pill contains synthetic versions of oestrogen and progesterone, which women produce naturally in their ovaries. These hormones prevent pregnancy in three main ways: stopping the release of an egg (ovulation), making it difficult for sperm to reach an egg, and making it hard for an egg to implant itself in the womb's lining.

Are there other forms of contraception?

Other long-acting reversible methods of contraception exist, including implants, contraceptive injections and the coil. These can be more effective and more convenient than the pill for some women. However, only condoms can reduce your risk of getting an STI.

How do I obtain an ongoing supply?

If you’ve already bought your pill from us, you can order a further 3 or 6 month supply from your Patient Record, if the doctor finds you suitable. Once you have logged in, go to your list of Suggested Treatments to find your pill. If you want to change your pill, please send a message to a doctor via your Patient Record.

Please note that combined contraceptives can cause your blood pressure to rise, which can be dangerous. Your blood pressure needs to be checked before you start any combined contraceptive. It should also be checked within the first 3 months of starting combined contraception and once a year after that. Your local LloydsPharmacy will measure your blood pressure for free.
