Going on the pill

Postby rufio89 » Tue May 05, 2009 10:00 am

Hiya,

I've been thinking about going on the pill for a while now, and I was just wondering if anyone knew whether I need to make a doctors appointment to do this? I vaguely remember hearing that you can just see the nurse?

Thanks!

I see the nurse; I just told the receptionist what I wanted and she told me who I needed to see.

I dont fancy going to the family planning place, I went with a friend not so long ago and it was full of 14 year olds and I found it depressing.

But yep, I will give them a call probably tomorrow now.

With my doctors' surgery I had to see the doctor initially, but I can make appointments with the nurse when I go back for more now that I've seen a doctor in the first instance.

I had to see the nurse initially who just checked me over and told me the risks unlike Ragdoll who saw the doctor. When you call the doctors tell them what you want and they'll tell you who to see as obviously all doctors are different.

Thats not entirely true; the doctor only knows you better if you a) go a lot and b) have been with the same doctor forever. I've been with the same doctors surgery for around 12 years and I'd say none of the doctors know me since I rarely go; apart from for the pill I've maybe been 6 times in those 12 years.
