    Maybe check with your family doctor on that pill's composition.You may find another brand name with the same hormone composition.Thats what I did when I couldn't get my brand of mini pill here in HK.

    I was told recently that the mini-pill is ONLY stocked by the Matilda Hospital. You need to get your doc to arrange a prescription for you to collect there.

    What do you mean by mini pill? Do you mean one that can be taken when breastfeeding, or one with similar ingredients?
    I took microlut which I got from my Dr in DB- he says such pills are available only by prescription because there isn't a demand for them in HK.

    i'm getting the cerazette from the MCHC (mother and child health centre), which is a government healthcare organisation. each consultation costs 1$ (!) including the costs for any doctor's consultation and the pills. they give me 3 packs at a time, so i don't need to show up there each month
