The Pill - Urgent
Hi, I've been on Nordette for 4 years now. I'm tired of taking a contraceptive that I need to remember to take everyday, same time. Is there an alternative? I have finished my last pack, if I stop taking until I am able to see a Gynae in January for an alternative, will that effect me having children 1 day? Lastly where can I get a list of Gynaecologists in my area?

You can use the injection or the IUCD. If you stop taking the Pill from now to January, you will obviously not be protected and could fall pregnant. You can try the Find a doctor section of the website for doctors in your area.
