FSRH | Progesterone only pills (POP)

This is an updated guideline from the FSRH on POPs. There is little new, but I have summarised the bits I found interesting.

Follow up

Women can be given 12m worth at the initial visit.

Using POP in people of higher weight

There is no need to use more than one pill, regardless of the patient’s weight.

"I have been working with NASGP as the main source of income since graduating. I can't recommend them more highly for newly-graduated GPs. They helped me with setting my terms and conditions and they even arranged a tutorial session about EMIS, as the system was new to me.

LocumDeck is a great help when it comes to organising sessions, pension forms and invoices for tax purposes.

NASGP was particularly supportive during the Covid-19 period. It recognised the effect it had on locum work, temporarily waived the already small fee on sessions and were keen on getting the members together in regular video meetings.

I'm a satisfied member of NASGP. "
