    I've been on the pill for a while now but I am moving away for university in the next few weeks and know I wont have enough for my time away.

    Should I ring my doctor and ask him to prescribe me a followup prescription so I should have enough or go straight to my pharmacy and explain to see if I can get enough supply for at least the first semester, or just wait and sign up to a new GP in my university area then get more? A little confused

    You'll be able to get them when you sign up to your local GP at university

    I would sign up with the university GP practice. For a few years you'll be spending more time there plus they are very experienced in student health matters.

    I'd say sign up to your GP at uni but still go to your regular GP before you move away and ask them to prescribe you enough to tide you over so you won't be cutting it close. You can always return to your old GP in your home town as a visitor

    You can buy them from lloyds online pharmacy ... Just register with a new GP when you're at uni anyway

    If your worried about continuing your prescription, you could always get the implant or an IUD?
