What is the contraceptive pill?

Types of contraceptive pill

There are a few different categories of the contraceptive pill:

  • Combined pills or mini pills
  • Monophasic or phasic pills
  • High-standard or low-dose oestrogen pills
  • 21 or 28 pill packs
  • Pills that contain different types of oestrogen and progesterone as their active ingredients

How to get the pill in the UK

You can get the pill in the UK through:

  • An online doctor service like Zava
  • GP surgeries
  • Sexual health clinics
  • Some young people’s services
  • Some community and hospital clinics (gynaecology)

Which pill is right for me?

If you do not have a medical reason why you should not take the pill and as long as you do not smoke, the pill may be suitable for you. Unfortunately, every woman seems to react slightly differently to each pill, so you may have to try a few until you find the one that works best for you. Some women who have had trouble with some of the other types of contraceptive pills find that ‘premium pills’ like Yasmin work better for them.

Side effects of the contraceptive pill

Common side effects of the combined contraceptive pill include:

  • Headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Low sex drive
  • Sore or tender breasts
  • Changes to your bleeding pattern, especially in the first 3 months

Common side effects of the progesterone only pill include:

  • Changes to bleeding patterns
  • Low sex drive
  • Acne
  • Headache
  • Breast pain
  • Nausea

Even though weight gain is listed as a potential side effect of both combined pills and mini pills, this is temporary and caused by water retention. Research does not show that the pill causes permanent weight gain, or that the mini pill causes depression or mood changes.

Side effects can vary depending on the type and amounts of hormones used in each combined pill or mini pill, so you should always read the information leaflet that comes with your pill for more information on potential side effects.
