A short-acting contraceptive method
We offer two different types of pill, each one providing different benefits.
Contraceptive pills contain hormones, similar to those naturally produced by a woman’s body. The pill needs to be taken at the same time every day to effectively prevent pregnancy. It’s ability to prevent pregnancy depends on a person using it correctly.
The two types of pill we have available have different advantages and disadvantages, depending on the woman. During a consultation, we can help you decide if one of these is right for you.
It can take between five to seven days for the pill to start working. You can use a condom or abstinence during this time. Your normal fertility will return immediately after you stop taking the pill.
99% when used correctly. This means that if one hundred women used the pill for a year, and never forgot to take a pill on time, then only one of those women would fall pregnant during that period. Some women forget to take the pill every day, which can increase the risk of unplanned pregnancy.
You can get oral contraceptive pills at all our centres.
