Default Contraceptive Pill

Will I have any problem in getting this in Dubai since I am not married? Do I just use my medical insurance to get an appointment with a doctor?

Does anyone happen to know if they stock Microgynan in Dubai? That's the pill that ive been on for almost 10 years now and do not want to change it!

Sara, take along the name/empty box (unless you have a doctors certificate to say they're prescribed drugs and not on the banned list) and see if they have something similar to what you're taking. The pills may have a different name but made by the same manufacturer.

BTW, I took Mycrogycan 20 years ago, boy did they make me feel ill!!!

So much the better if you can get it over the counter. I was on Femodene in the Uk and actually came off it cause I had no time to go and renew my prescription. Long hours at work just caught up with me. Oh well! Left bf behind so unlikely to need it till December but if any of you gals find out where I can get some, just post the info! Bf will be moving over soon and would rather be safe than sorry!!

I'm on Yasmin and it's really great, so if all else fails, I can recommend that one

My wife also uses Yasmin. She swears by it. Said it's much better than the previous ones she used...

When I was in Norway I used Cerazette. Once I got here I popped into the pharmacy and noticed they have it here too, so I decided to stick with it. It's about 17dirhams for a month's supply. It's also nice not having to go to a gynecologist every time you need the pill.
