    I'm moving abroad for a year in a few weeks and I'm not sure what to do about the pill.

    I've been on microgynon 30 for about 5 years and I want to keep taking it while I'm away. I'm not due my yearly review for about another 5 months, but I need to get a years prescription to take away with me. Will they do this? Usually I get 6 months at a time. I don't want to waste the doctors time if they can't do it, but not sure what else to do!

    Why not ring up and explain your situation?
