Pill

My 17yr old daughter is in a relationship. Although she has been open and honest with me and has not had sexual intercourse we have decided to put her on the pill just in case. She also suffers from severe period pains. Which pill would you recommend? We are not a medical aid so would like to get it at the clinic if possible.

Hallo Angi
Before starting on a pill a young woman should preferably see a doctor or trained sister, who should ask about family history of breast cancer, deep vein thrombosis, find out whether the patient smokes or not, test urine, do blood pressure reading and weight, check for hormone imbalances and then determine the best lowest dose contraceptive that would be suitable for her to use. A combination of pain and anti-inflammatory medication usually work well for severe period pain (e.g. Myprodol, Grandpa, Mypaid etc)
