Contraception

LloydsPharmacy can help you with your contraception needs, online and in store.

Contraceptive Pill

If you're already on the pill, then our Online Doctor can arrange a repeat supply of your existing pill without seeing a doctor face to face (although you will still have to have a quick online consultation with one of our doctors to check your suitability). If you are prescribed the pill you can choose to have it delivered to you next day or you can collect it for free from you local LloydsPharmacy the same day (exclusions apply).
