We need to ask you some questions about your health before we can safely prescribe the combined pill for you.

Blood pressure is the force that moves blood around your body. It is normally measured by a cuff around your upper arm.
Everybody’s blood pressure is different, and it can change (become high or low) without you noticing.
For some people, the combined pill makes their blood pressure higher. Unmanaged high blood pressure puts you at increased risk of stroke or heart attack. It is important to check your blood pressure before you start taking the combined pill, and once a year whilst you continue to take it.
