This is also known as “the mini pill” or POP and only contains one hormone- progestogen. It works slightly differently to the combined pill and it is very important that it is taken regularly within the time limits. Please see the attached leaflet for what to do if you forget your pills or go to the missed pill calculator. Our clinic staff are happy to advise if you are uncertain.

The POP is useful for women unable to take the combined pill for medical reasons and also if you are breast feeding. Our clinic staff will be able to discuss your contraception options with you.
