Let's go, biology class! The COCP works in a few different ways to prevent pregnancy:
- It prevents the ovaries releasing an egg (aka ovulation) every month, which significantly reduces the chances of pregnancy.
- Causes the mucus around the neck of the womb (the cervix) to thicken, making it harder for sperm to enter the womb and reach an egg to fertilise.
- Thins the lining of the womb (endometrium), meaning if an egg was fertilised, it would have less chance of implanting into the lining of the womb.
There is a very low risk of serious side effects including blood clots and cervical cancers, but these are very rare, and this is why we ask you to take a questionnaire which is appraised by our trusted pharmacy partner to ensure your risk is low.
If you are over the age of 35 and smoke, COCPs are not
suitable for you. Other medical conditions that make the COCP unsuitable include:
- a history of blood clots in your leg or lungs
- a previous stroke
- a family history of blood clots (in a close family member under the age of 45)
- heart conditions
- high blood pressure
- severe migraines that have an aura
(sensory disturbances that occur before migraine headache)
- a history of breast cancer
This is why we ask you to fill in the short medical questionnaire before we prescribe any COCP.
