QUICK FACTS ABOUT THE POP:

- You must take the progestogen-only pill at the same time each day. If you take it more than 3 hours late (traditional progestogen-only pill) – or 12 hours late (desogestrel pill) – it may not be effective.
- If you're sick (vomit) or have severe diarrhoea, the progestogen-only pill may not work.
- Some medicines may affect the progestogen-only pill's effectiveness – ask your pharmacist or doctor for details.
- Your periods may stop or become lighter, irregular or more frequent.
- You'll need to use condoms as well as the progestogen-only pill to be protected against sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Speak to a pharmacist, nurse or GP, or call NHS 111 or the national sexual health helpline free on 0300 123 7123, if you're unsure whether you're protected against pregnancy, or if your sickness or diarrhoea continues.

MEDICINE INTERACTIONS WITH THE POP:
When you take 2 or more medicines at the same time, they can sometimes interact with each other.Some medicines interact with the progestogen-only pill, which can stop it working properly.

If you want to check whether your medicines are safe to take with the progestogen-only pill, you can:

- Ask your pharmacist, practice nurse or GP
- Read the patient information leaflet that comes with your medicine

SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED INFECTIONS:
Most methods of contraception don’t protect you from sexually transmitted infections. Condoms (male/external or female/internal), when used correctly and consistently, can help protect against sexually transmitted infections. If you can, avoid using spermicidally lubricated condoms. The spermicide commonly contains a chemical which may increase the risk of HIV infection.
