Frequently asked questions

Where can I get contraceptive pills safely?

As long as a doctor, nurse, or pharmacist has approved your pill then it will be safe for you. You can get the pill safely from your GP surgery, sexual health clinics, UK pharmacies or online doctor services like ZAVA.

Does the contraceptive pill cause weight gain?

The pill does not cause permanent weight gain. Contraceptive pills can cause temporary weight gain due to water retention. This should go away on its own.

➤ See our page on the pill and weight gain for more information.

Does the contraceptive pill stop periods?

The combined pill usually includes a 7-day break every 21 days during which you have a withdrawal bleed similar to a period. The mini pill generally stops periods but you can still have some light breakthrough bleeding or spotting.

Contraceptive pills are meant for avoiding pregnancy. If you want to delay your period for reasons like trips abroad or religious festivals, period delay treatment might be a more appropriate choice.

➤ See our page on does the pill stop your period for more information.

Can the contraceptive pill cause thrush?

Contraceptive pills don’t cause yeast infections directly, but the pill can increase your risk of getting thrush. This is because the hormones in the pill change the natural hormone balance of the vagina, which can lead to an overgrowth of yeast bacteria. You can order thrush treatment online from ZAVA.

What does achy legs on the pill mean?

Getting achy legs on the combined pill could be a sign of deep vein thrombosis, which is a serious health condition. Get medical help right away if you experience:

  • leg pain
  • leg swelling
  • difficulty breathing
  • chest pain

Can the pill cause high blood pressure?

The combined pill can raise your blood pressure slightly, but that doesn’t mean you’ll have high blood pressure from a clinical point of view. This rise in blood pressure is only a problem if you already have high blood pressure or you’re at risk of it.

Do antibiotics affect the pill?

Most antibiotics don’t affect the pill. Antibiotics that do affect the pill include

  • rifampicin
  • rifabutin

Tell your doctor that you’re on the pill or on one of these antibiotics before starting the other. You may need to use extra contraceptive protection during your course of antibiotics.
