What is the contraceptive pill?Contraceptive Pill Harrow Wembley Murrays Chemist

If you have been using the same oral contraceptive pill for at least a year, you can now get your repeat prescription direct from Murrays Chemist in Harrow.

Oral contraceptives are tablets that contain certain female hormones to stop a woman from getting pregnant. There are two main types of the contraceptive pill:

The combined oral contraceptive pill (COC) also simply “the pill” contains two hormones called oestrogen and progesterone. This is a very effective form of contraception that works in three ways:

  • Stops you from producing an egg.
  • Makes it harder for sperm to get into the womb.
  • Thins the womb lining making egg-implantation less likely.

When taking a combined pill, you usually take one pill and day for three weeks and then give your self a 7-day break when you will have a period.

The progesterone-only pill (POP) also known as the “mini-pill” contains only progesterone.  POPs work in two ways:

  • Stops you from producing an egg.
  • Makes it harder for sperm to get into the womb.

If you use a mini-pill you will take one tablet a day without a break.
