Your Details

Further Information


If you answer yes to any of the above questions please contact reception to book an appointment with the practice nurse.


Make sure you read the leaflet and know how to take your pill. The pill might not work if you have diarrhoea or vomit, take other medication including those you buy over-the-counter, or if you miss a pill. In any of these instances it is important you know what to do. Discuss with your doctor if you have any concerns. You can find information in these leaflets.


This link is information on the combined pill https://www.fpa.org.uk/sites/default/files/the-combined-pill-your-guide.pdf, and this one is for the progesterone only pill https://www.mysurgerywebsite.co.uk/website/J82110/files/popleaflet.pdf.


If you’re not sure which contraceptive pill you take please contact the practice. 


Your prescription will be ready within 3 working days. If there are any problems reissuing your prescription you will be contacted, please make sure your contact details are up to date.


Using the pill does not protect you against sexually transmitted infections. If you have not had a chlamydia test within the last year of if you have a new partner we recommend being tested. You can pick up a chlamydia test from reception, drop it back to the surgery when you have completed the test, and phone for the results. You can also obtain a test on line https://www.unitysexualhealth.co.uk/test-kit/ 


Long-acting reversible contraception's are a range of methods that provide effective contraception for an extended period of time. Unlike the contraceptive pill, you do not have to remember these methods daily. For this reason, the methods are highly effective at preventing unwanted pregnancies, and they can be stopped if you decided you want to get pregnant.


If you would like to know about these methods please look at this link  https://www.fpa.org.uk/sites/default/files/long-acting-reversible-contraception-your-guide.pdf


There is also an injection you can give yourself to save trips to the surgery.  Please watch the link below as it will give clear instructions on how to administer your own Sayana Press Contraceptive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hi2o-mlQJjc. 


If you need further information book an appointment with a nurse/ advanced nurse practitioner or Doctor.
