Welcome to the Know Your Contraceptives website.

We believe that the more you know about your contraceptive, the more comfortable you will be with it. Taking it correctly gives you the best chance of preventing an unwanted pregnancy.

It is worth remembering that only your health care provider knows your full medical history, so if there is any information on this page or in the patient information leaflet, (contained in your packet of pills) that you want to know more about, or that worries you, please go and talk to your doctor or nurse for guidance.
