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.

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.

It is important that you read and understand the terms before you use our service. The general medical council says that doctors can only prescribe a medication to the person who is going to take it. That means you cannot order a medication for someone else. This is because only they know their needs and medical history. Other people may think they know, but will often have gaps in their knowledge, meaning ordering on behalf of someone else is not safe.

Your order will be sent by Royal Mail's 24hr tracked service. However, due to COVID-19, deliveries may be delayed. Please consider this when ordering.
