About The Lowdown

Our Founder Alice started The Lowdown in 2019 after struggling to find a contraception method that worked for her, or even a place to find other people’s experiences. Since then, we’ve been helping women and people with vaginas navigate the complexities of contraception, reproductive and sexual healthcare.

 

The Lowdown is a one-stop shop for people to choose, access and use the right contraception for them, as well as other products to help manage contraception side effects and hormonal symptoms. Combining real, user-generated content (our community always comes first), legit medical advice from our in-house team of doctors and our super simple prescriptions service, we are determined to provide better solutions, information and advice to those who need it.

 

These are some of the problems we’re looking to solve:

Lack of data and information

Almost 80% of people get side effects from their contraception, but the lack of clinical evidence or high quality information in this space makes it really difficult to navigate. Our community-generated review data is unique and gives you an insight into the benefits and side effects that you could experience on different contraception methods.

Getting expert medical advice is hard

It’s difficult for a GP or practice nurse to fit a proper contraception consultation into a 10 minute appointment. There are so many questions and options to run through, so it’s no surprise that 33% of Lowdown users don’t feel they get to discuss everything they’d like to in an appointment. We need time, expertise and to most importantly, to be listened to.

Contraception is difficult to access

One third of women in the UK don’t have easy or convenient access to contraception, and this just gets worse for women worldwide. From being offered the full range of different pill brands, to trying to get an appointment for coil fitting or removal… The Lowdown exists to make it simple. Because we all deserve better.
