There are two types of contraceptive pill:

  1. Combined pill

  2. Progesterone only pill (POP)

Choosing contraception is a personal choice and if you are thinking about the contraceptive pill, you can visit a Spectrum clinic to discuss your options. Simply find a clinic near you and visit a drop-in session or make an appointment. You can also get the contraceptive pill from your GP.

Important information

Even if you choose the contraceptive pill method to prevent pregnancy, you will still need to use a condom to help prevent the transfer of sexually transmitted infections.Condoms can protect you from STI’s such as syphilis and gonorrhoea, both of which have increased in the last couple of years.
