If you are considering using the contraceptive pill, or the morning-after pill for the first time, then you should contact your doctor or health centre for advice. OxfordOnlinePharmacy provides an easy and convenient way to obtain the pill, as we can supply all the leading types and brands at reasonable prices. You must have a prescription to order the contraceptive pill, and we can provide a free private prescription.
There are several types of pill, which are 99% effective and prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg each month. The contraceptive pill can also be used for the control of heavy periods, premenstrual syndrome and endometriosis.
So which is the best pill for you? There are two main types - the combined contraceptive pill and the progesterone-only pill. The combined contraceptive pill works by releasing synthetic versions of oestrogen and progesterone hormones. There are everyday pills, which have 28 pills in each pack, 21 active and 7 dummies. The pills are taken in order with no break between pills. Microgynon (ED), Femodene (ED) and Logynon (ED) are the most popular of these pills at our pharmacy.
Monophasic 21-day pills are the most popular combined contraceptive pills at OxfordOnlinePharmacy. The pill is simply taken for 21 days with a 7-day break. Microgynon 30 63 tablets, Yasmin 63 tablets and Cilest 63 tablets are the best selling pills at our online chemist.
Phasic 21 day pills are an alternative combined contraceptive pill. These are taken for 21 days, with a 7-day break, but have different colours and different strengths of hormones, so need to be taken in the correct order. The most popular example of this pill is Logynon.
The progesterone-only pill, sometimes called the mini pill or POP, is used by women who may have high blood pressure, blood clots, smokers, overweight or maybe over 35. These pills contain no oestrogen. Popular examples include Cerazette and Micronor.
An alternative to the pill is Evra. A patch is worn on the skin and changed weekly. It works the same way as the pill, as the hormones oestrogen and progesterone are released to prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg.
If you have had unprotected sex or had the failure of a condom, then the morning after pill may prevent pregnancy. It is more effective the sooner it is taken following intercourse. Levonelle can be used up to 3 days and EllaOne up to 5 days following sex. A prescription is required.
Whichever pill you choose or require, our online pharmacy can help. For information or advice, please telephone 01295 262925.
