Female Contraception

Please complete the online consultation before purchasing treatment

There are many methods of female contraception, and it is important to find the one that best suits your body and lifestyle. Which of the methods works best can depend on a number of details, such as age, smoker status and potential side effects, as well as other lifestyle factors. It is important to consult a professional to discuss all of your available options.
Common contraceptive methods include “the pill” and vaginal ring. At My Chemist Plus, we offer these methods delivered straight to your door.

Oral contraceptives contain a small amount of the hormones your body produces during your menstrual cycle, they work to stop ovulation (egg release from the ovary), which in turn can prevent pregnancy. There are two main types, the combined pill, and the progesterone-only pill.

The combined pill contains both oestrogen and progestogen and is taken at the same time each day, usually for three weeks followed by a seven-day break, when you will have a “period”, also known as a withdrawal bleed.

The progestogen-only pill, or mini pill is taken every day without a break.

As well as being taken to prevent pregnancy, types of oral contraception can be prescribed to help regulate heavy, irregular periods and can prevent or lessen acne.

We stock a number of brands of oral contraception here at My Chemist Plus. Do not hesitate to book an online consultation, where we can provide further advice on which may be the best option for your needs.
