We want to help you understand the connection between blood pressure and taking the contraceptive patch.

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 contraceptive patch 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 contraceptive patch, and once a year whilst you continue to take it.

Need help? If you have any questions, or need help or advice, text: 07860 041 233 to speak to our clinical team.

We use this information to check that you are eligible for this service. We will never share this information without your consent.

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.

You cannot order for someone else. The General Medical Council only allows doctors to prescribe a medication for or do a test on the person who requested it. That means you cannot order for someone else. This is for safety and confidentiality. Only the person who is going to take the medicine can give us a full medical history and only the person who provided the sample should have access to this result.

Please be aware there may be delays with the postal service at this time. We will text you when we dispatch your order but please be extra patient whilst you wait for it to arrive.
