Combined hormonal contraception
Faculty of Sexual & Reproductive Healthcare
How does combined hormonal contraception (CHC) work?
- Women can be informed that the bleed experienced during the hormone-free interval or placebo week of pill taking is due to withdrawal of hormones rather than a menstrual bleed
- Health professionals may wish to advise women about the use of extended or continuous regimens of CHC but should be aware that such use is off licence
