Can you buy Rigevidon over the counter in the UK?

Rigevidon is only available on prescription in the UK, but you can get Rigevidon from a number of different places: 

  • Your GP
  • Family planning clinic
  • Sexual health clinic
  • Online pharmacies, such as Dr Felix. 

It is important to have a doctor verify that the pill is safe for you because the contraceptive pill can cause serious side effects in some people. 


Alternative Treatments

There is a wide range of different contraceptive pills available on the market. Combined oral contraceptives like Rigevidon are the most commonly prescribed. There are also combined pills available at lower doses and with placebo pills included to help you keep track of when to take your pill. Alternatively, you can take a progesterone-only pill. This is most suitable for people who experience oestrogen-related side effects or if using oestrogen-containing pills would be a risk. 

There are also a wide range of other contraceptive options available including:

  • The contraceptive implant
  • The contraceptive injection (Depo-Provera)
  • The IUD
  • The IUS
  • Condoms
  • Diaphragms
  • Contraceptive rings (NuvaRing)
  • Contraceptive patches (Evra)

You can discuss these options with a doctor or specialist nurse to work out which one may be best for you.
