How to write a helpful review

Do:

  • Only report side effects or experiences you are confident you had or have
  • Select ‘I don’t know’ if you can’t be sure it was contraception causing these symptoms
  • Tell us things other users will find useful to know

Don’t

  • Exaggerate or distort your experience
  • Use swear words or offensive language
  • Report someone else’s experience

Please follow these four guidelines to ensure everyone can benefit from reading helpful and balanced experiences:

Accurate

Your review should be truthful and constitute your own personal opinion and experience with a type of contraception you have used or are using.

Easy to read

Your writing doesn’t have to be perfect, but we need to be able to understand it. We reject reviews for excessive capitalisation or filler words and characters. Your review will be more credible if you use good grammar, spelling and punctuation.

Relevant

What information would be useful to lots of people, or to someone who’s starting this contraception for the first time? Try and think about what are the main things other people should know before trying or whilst using this type of contraception.

Balanced (where possible)

We all love to exaggerate, but we encourage you to think about your experience from a few perspectives and include both a pro and a con to provide a balanced review.
