Contraception

What do I do if I miss a pill?

If you miss a pill take it as soon as you remember and contact one of our clinics or your GP if you need to take emergency contraception or are uncertain about this. Also use a back-up method, such as condoms, for a week.

If I am taking my birth control pills do we still need to use condoms? - See more at: https://www.northumbria.nhs.uk/our

Yes.

Birth control pills are only prescribed to prevent pregnancy; Condoms offer your best chance at preventing STIs.

pills do not prevent sexually transmitted infections.
