A blood pressure reading is two numbers. We need to know this as the combined pill can sometimes cause a small increase in blood pressure. Therefore, if you already have high blood pressue it would be unsafe to take the combined pill. If you have high blood pressure, you will still be able to complete this order form, but before your oral contraception is prescribed, an SH:24 clinician will call you to discuss.

SH:24 is currently only available in some parts of the UK. We use your postcode to check this, and to make sure that your oral contraception is sent to the right address. We will never share this information without your consent.
We use this information to help us understand how people choose oral contraception. All usage data is anonymous. We will never share personal details without your consent. Common names for the combined pill include: Microgynon, Rigevidon, Yasmin and Loestrin 30.
If you don't know the name of the pill you have taken, but think you might be able to recognise the packet, follow these links to find it and see whether it is a combined pill or progestogen only pill (POP).
In the future we will offer repeat prescriptions for oral contraception. We will need to know if you have ordered from SH:24 before to allow us to direct you to a shorter order form. We will ask you to confirm some of your details and let us know if your health or contact and delivery details have changed since your last order.
It is important that you read and understand these before you use SH:24.
If you would like to order the combined oral contraceptive pill, you will need to provide a blood pressure reading.
