Hi Z

The only one that WONT require a prescription is Microval and similar "mini-pills" - All other oestrogen containing oral contraceptives will require a prescription. There are may options apart from Triphasil e.g. Yasmin, Femodene, etc. These wil however, as you have stressed, require a visit to the doctor.
