Can you buy Marvelon over the counter in the UK?

Marvelon is not available over the counter in the UK. However, a prescription can be obtained from a number of different places, including your GP, sexual health clinics and family planning centres. Once you have been prescribed Marvelon, you can get a repeat prescription from online pharmacies such as Dr Felix. However, it is recommended that you have a check-up every three months with a sexual health nurse, to ensure that the pill is right for you and not causing any concerning side effects.
