Contraceptive Treatments

There are many options available to you if you wish to use a hormonal contraceptive treatment as your method of birth control. The usage and dosage will differ depending on which type of hormonal contraceptive treatment you choose, so you should make sure you read all the information available to you carefully.

Prescription contraceptive treatments

The most common and most popular hormonal contraceptive treatment is the oral contraceptive pill. Also increasing steadily in popularity are hormonal contraception alternatives such as the contraceptive patch and the contraceptive ring, which are just as effective as the pills. The variety of hormonal contraceptive treatment options means every woman has a comprehensive choice of birth control methods, so you are able to choose the one which is most suited to you.

All hormonal contraceptive treatment methods require a prescription and we recommend that you discuss your options with your doctor before deciding on a treatment. If you decide to order your hormonal contraceptive treatment at OnlineClinic, you will need to complete a short online consultation, which will be completely free.

Combined Contraceptive Pill
Combined Contraceptive Pill The combined contraceptive pill is the most popular form of hormonal birth control used in the UK. Combined pills contain two synthetic hormones: progestogen and oestrogen. These work to alter the reproductive environment to prevent pregnancy, and are almost 100% effective. They are a convenient and safe method of birth control and there is a range of options from which to choose.

Mini Pills
Mini Pills Mini-pills are otherwise known as progestogen-only pills because they contain only the synthetic hormone progestogen, as opposed to the combined pill that also contains synthetic oestrogen. The lack of oestrogen makes the mini-pill more suitable for women who are sensitive to this hormone, and also to those who smoke, are breastfeeding or are over the age of 35. The mini-pill is highly effective and safe, with a low risk of side effects.
Treatments: Micronor Cerazette Femulen Noriday

The synthetic hormones, oestrogen and progestogen, prevent ovulation and change the reproductive environment to prevent pregnancy. The patch is almost 100% effective and has a low risk of side effects.

It is often recommended as an alternative method of contraception for women who find it difficult to remember to take the pil every day.
