Contraceptive pill can be taken every day, NHS says in new guidance



The NHS reproductive health body setting standards has produced new guidance on the contraceptive pill can be taken every day of the month.

The Department of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH) said there is no health benefit to a seven-day break while taking the combined contraceptive pill – a practice first introduced in the hope of the Catholic Church would accept some form of contraception.

Experts hope the updated advice can help prevent more unwanted pregnancies. The new Nice-approved clinical guidelines confirm the direction already given by many doctors advising their patients against the seven-day break while on the pill.

Professor John Guillebaud, emeritus professor of family planning and reproductive health, rejected the "sub-optimal" way the combined hormone contraceptive pill has traditionally been taken for 60 years.

"The gynecologist John Rock devised [the break] because he hoped that the Pope would accept the pill and make it acceptable for Catholics to use," Professor Guillebaud customs The Telegraph

"Rock thought if it did imitate the natural cycle then the pope would accept it. When his campaign was taken by the Pope failed, just stopped being a Catholic, having been a committed one for his entire life. ”

taking the pill in a sub-optimal way because of this you want the Pope? ”

Medical experts expect 365 day pill prescriptions – for a full year of combined hormonal contraception – to become widespread in the UK if the guidelines are followed . The combined pill is commonly packaged in rows of 21, so there are not enough pills in a single pack for a full month.
