Re: [IPk] contraceptive pill access

Hi Jennifer,
 I went on the combined pill when I was 17yrs old and was diagnosed with T1 when
I was 24. I had a locum GP tell me that I shouldn't be on the pill due to my T1.
My own GP is of the opinion that any risks with the pill, such as strokes etc
are minimal compared to such risks in pregnancy - especially an unplanned one.
 I have changed over to one of the new generation mini pills, only because of my
age (nearly 40) and I find it much better than the combined pill - but that's
another story!!
Good luck with your fight!

Subject: [IPk] contraceptive pill access

HiJust got back from a pill check at my new surgery-however the practice nurse
seemed shocked I had ever been given the pill in the first place & refused to
prescribe it! I've never come across this before. To give you a bit of
background-I've been taking the pill since I was 17, am now 24, never had any
problems with it & am a normal weight with good blood pressure. Has this ever
happened to you? I do not want to change my contraception unnecessarily! And
am thinking a family planning clinic would be my next option?
