Are you using a Desogestrel 75 mcg POP for contraception now?
Did you miss out or were more than 12 hours late taking your pills in the last month?
Missed contraception rules.
If you have missed pills, you may be at risk from an unplanned pregnancy. Please follow the missed contraceptive advice in the patient leaflet of your pill or click here NHS Advise Link or here Sexwise advise link for more advice on missed contraception rules to see if you may be at risk of a pregnancy.
What should I do if I think I may be at risk of pregnancy?
To help prevent any future episodes of missed pills you could think about;
Are you sure you are not currently pregnant?
Have you experienced any different or abnormal vaginal bleeding e.g. bleeding after sex in the last 4 weeks?
Has there been any change to your medical history since you were last prescribed the Desogestrel 75mcg POP from SHiP?
This includes medication that is prescribed by a doctor or nurse, purchased over the counter in the pharmacy, herbal remedies and drugs used for study or recreational purposes.
Are you allergic to progestogen, soya, nuts or lactose?
Have you had a test for sexually transmitted infections in the last 12 months or since you had sex with a new sexual partner?
Would you like us to send you a home test for Chlamydia & Gonorrhoea with your prescription for the Desogestrel 75 mcg POP?
If so, follow this link to the SHiP online test Form: Link
I know that missing pills or having diarrhoea and/or vomiting may prevent the POP from working and that I may be at risk from an unplanned pregnancy. I will need to follow the advice for missed pills or contact SHiP for further advice if this happens.
I have answered all questions as honestly and accurately as I can and the information, I have given my up-to-date medical history so that the SHiP team can safely assess and advise me.
I am using this service freely on my own behalf and confirm that any treatment or advice is for my own use only.
I fully understand the questions and information. If I am unsure about any aspect of the service, I will contact SHiP (tel: 01752 431124) before proceeding.
I understand about how to take the POP, the side effects, effectiveness and that there are alternative methods of contraception to the POP which I am requesting.
I understand that I will inform my GP about medication so that they can provide safe medical care.
