Thank you for your question. Your gynaecologist will be able to prescribe oral contraceptive pills after a general check up including your weight and blood pressure and a detailed family history. Oral contraceptive pills are safe to take, are highly effective at preventing unwanted pregnancy, are unrelated to the sexual act and have numerous non contraceptive benefits like good cycle control, lighter periods and prevention of ovarian and endometrial cancer longterm. You can find out more about your contraceptive choices on WWW.FPA.org
