The Importance of Individualised Prescribing

The BBC have recently published a video in which eight women from across the globe share their personal experiences on the pill.

The biggest takeaway from this powerful video is the huge variety there was in these women’s experiences. Some found that their biggest side effect was weight gain while others suffered from severe anxiety.

Not only is this eye opening in regards to how medication can affect people differently, but it also highlights the importance of individualised prescribing.

Here at Hormone Health, we want to minimise side effects and maximise benefits of the pill and other contraceptive methods, always with the underlying principle that every woman is different and the way we prescribe medicines should reflect that.
