You may have questions about your health - this is where we can help. Our pharmacists are educated about women’s health concerns such as menopause, period pain, vaginal thrush, urinary tract infections (UTIs) and weight gain.
There are two main types of oral contraceptive pills, the 'combined' and 'mini'. The combined contains two hormones which inhibit the ovaries releasing an egg each month. The mini has only one hormone and works by changing the mucus at the entrance to the womb preventing sperm from passing through.
The Emergency Contraceptive Pill (ECP) can be taken to prevent pregnancy up to 72 hours after unprotected sex. Appointments are not required, and our accredited pharmacists can supply the ECP after a private consultation.
A consultation fee may apply for this service.
Urinary Tract Infections are a common condition which typically affect women. Symptoms may include pain and a burning sensation when urinating, nausea and vomiting, pain in the lower back or sides, and even blood in the urine. If left untreated, UTIs can lead to serious complications, so it’s important to discuss any concerns with us once they arise.
