For a small minority of users, the combined pill, patch and ring can cause an increase in blood pressure which can increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes. – In line with national guidance we therefore ask you to get a blood pressure check within 3 months of placing your order and every 12 months to ensure your contraception is safe for you!
It’s super important and it only takes a quick trip to the pharmacy or you can buy your own blood machine online if you prefer.
Here’s a list of options to choose from:
- Blood Pressure UK: Find your nearest free blood pressure check
- LloydsPharmacy: blood pressure checks
- Amazon.co.uk: Blood Pressure Monitors
- Blood Pressure Monitors
If you have a subscription with us, we will contact you before your renewal to remind you to get a BP check. Legally, we cannot renew your subscription without you updating your medical details.
If your blood pressure is raised, we won’t be able to prescribe your medication and will offer alternatives. Don’t worry – we have an excellent team of doctors who you can chat with about your contraception options.
If you have any questions about this, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
