At the moment we can only prescribe the Combined and Progestogen-only pills on the list. If you want to be able to order other Pills through us, just email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see if we can sort this out for you
Ordering contraception through The Lowdown couldn’t be easier. Click here to fill out a short questionnaire telling us about you and your medical history. Our pharmacy team will review your pill prescription request and get in touch.
Normally between 2-3 days. If you place your before 12pm on a weekday, one of our clinicians will review it that day and it should be sent out in that day’s post – arriving the next day or day after using Royal Mail 24 hour service. If you place your after Friday night, we won’t be able to review it until Monday.
A 3 month supply of any brand of pill costs £20 – including Royal Mail delivery
Yes, if you are ordering the Combined Pill we will need to know your recent blood pressure reading. This is because the Combined Pill has a small increased risk of blood clots. You can find out more about blood clots here.
Unfortunately, due to the complicated way the NHS is set up we’re not able to offer free prescriptions at the moment (we’re working on it!) But we want to make this service as affordable as we can to help improve contraception access for women
"I definitely would be using your service again, especially because of the amazing customer service"
"I ordered the Combined Pill brand that The Lowdown's Dr Mel recommended, and it arrived through my door the next day. So far it has not given me unwanted side effects - I think I have finally found the pill that suits me!"
"I am so in love with the concept of The Lowdown! It's one of the most reliable sources I have found. I order through you because I didn't want to bother my GP - and love how easy it is"
