Risks of taking the contraceptive pill

The pill can have some serious side-effects, but these are very uncommon and vary depending on your general health, age and the type of pill you take. For most women the benefits of the pill outweigh the possible risks.

We do not prescribe contraception online to women in high risk groups. The following factors are associated with an increased risk of using the pill: 

  • A history of blood clots or a family history of blood clots
  • Obesity (body mass index over 30)
  • Diabetes
  • Smokers
  • High blood pressure (over 140/90)
  • Longterm immobility, e.g. confined to a wheelchair or bed
  • Women over 35 (women over 35 who smoke are advised to consider switching to the mini pill)
  • A history of migraine

For full details please consult the patient information leaflet supplied with your pill pack.

The combined oral contraceptive pill (which contains oestrogen and progestegen) increases the risk of blood clots, arterial disease, migraines, and high blood pressure. There is a small increase in the risk of breast and cervical cancer, however this is balanced by a small decrease in the risk of cancer of the ovaries and womb.

Please note this service does not replace your regular face-to-face contraceptive pill check-up.
