This is also known as “the pill”. It contains two hormones-estrogen and progesterone. There are a number of different pills to suit your contraception needs.

It is important to take them regularly to protect you against pregnancy and to know what to do if you forget to take them. Please see missed pill advice or contact our clinic staff if you are not sure what you need to do. It can help to use a phone alarm/reminder or an App that can remind you to take your pill.

Combined pills can help with heavy and painful periods, acne and PMS. Not everyone can use the combined pill for various medical reasons. Come and talk to our clinic staff if you are interested in starting the pill.
