Hi everyone,

I have decided I would like to start on the pill as I have a long-term partner now and am bored of the faff of condoms.

I was looking at the progesterone only as I can’t actually get a blood pressure check at the moment (so hard to get a drs appointment!) but I was wondering what the difference between this and the other types of pills are?

Any tips/experiences are always useful!

Hey, can I just double check if the Progesterone-only pill has synthetic or natural progesterone? I wasn’t sure if you did both options or even if they serve different purposes? Would also be interesting if there are any blogs that talk about the differences between synthetic and natural forms of this hormone. x

I thought all synthetic?

Hey @Harry - yes, as Eliza says, all the progesterone only pills are made with synthetic hormones, either Levonorgestrel or Desogestrel. These synthetic hormones prevent pregnancy by thickening the mucus in the cervix to stop sperm reaching an egg. Hope that helps :slight_smile:
