Additional Information
What are Contraceptive Pills and how do they work?
  • Combined oral contraceptives ("the pill") - Combined oral contraceptive pills (COCs) such as Dianette, Marvelon and Yasmin and Zoely contain different combinations of the synthetic estrogens and progestins and are given to interfere with ovulation. Use of COC pills is not recommended for women who smoke and are more than 35 years old or for any woman who has high blood pressure, a history of blood clots, or a history of breast, liver, or endometrial cancer.
  • Progestogen-only pills (POPs) or Mini Pills - Progestogen-only pills such as Cerazette may interfere with ovulation or with sperm function. POPs thicken cervical mucus, making it difficult for sperm to swim into the uterus or to enter the fallopian tube. These hormones do not appear to be associated with an increased risk of blood clots and are ideal for women breast feeding or who smoke.

Both types of pills are an easy, effective way of family planning and preventing an unwanted pregnancy. You can buy contraception online from Medical Specialists® today safe in the knowledge of next day delivery.

Benefits of Contraceptive Pills

The main benefits of combined oral contraceptive pills are of course preventing unwanted pregnancies however taking the contraceptive pill can offer women a variety of other benefits, such as better control of their menstrual cycle (due to the fact you take the pill for 21 days then have a 7 day break), it does not interrupt sex and the pill usually makes bleeds lighter and less painful. In addition, it reduces your risk of cancer of the ovaries, womb and colon and reduces symptoms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome).

However, there is a risk of blood clots associated with this type of pill and can cause some side effects which may include mood swings, weight gain and skin problems.

The mini pill (progestogen only) is taken by many women and convenient due to the fact it is simply just taken every day. The health risks are also lessened compared to the combined pill, particular in regard to blood clots. This type of pill is ideal for women who struggle to tolerate oestrogen and can even be taken if you are breastfeeding.

The mini pill is deemed to be slightly less effective by some and may result in some mild irregular bleeding because there is no scheduled period whilst on the therapy.
