Tracking international deliveries

Dr Fox no longer posts medicine outside the UK

This is for regulatory reasons beyond our control.

International deliveries with DHL

EU customers that selected the Express international delivery option can track their orders at the DHL website or can send an SMS text to +447720334455 and enter their parcel tracking number as the message only – an SMS will be sent back with details of the shipment.

Standard international deliveries

Standard international deliveries are sent as Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed, and picked up by the Royal Mail in the UK and transported to the EU destination country where the parcel is then the responsibility of the postal service of that country. The service usually takes between 3-14 days from when the item is picked up from our pharmacy, but in rare instances can take longer.

When your item is despatched a tracking number will be emailed to you – to help you find this email the subject line of the email contains your order number and the text “has been dispatched” and is sent from the email address “Dr Fox <>”. The tracking number is also available to view in the details of the order in your My Account section.

You can track the progress of your delivery using either the Royal Mail tracking service until it arrives in the destination country. Once the parcel arrives in the destination country please use the national postal service (list below) or some countries use GLS European parcel service.

Delivery update emails

Delivery updates will be sent to patients by email when available from Royal Mail.

Can men who are trying for a pregnancy take Propecia?

Full question:
I have read the information on your website regarding Propecia. However, there is no information regarding whether or not a male who is trying for a baby with his partner can take Propecia. I have heard conflicting information on this, and although you have made it clear that women, especially when pregnant, could suffer birth defects from coming into contact with finasteride, there is no mention on your website about whether men who are trying for a pregnancy should avoid Propecia. I have read the patient information leaflet, and there is nothing about it there either. Based on the above, I am assuming that it is ok for men who are trying for a pregnancy to take Propecia, but would very much appreciate confirmation from one of your doctors on this matter.

I’m taking Rigevidon but missed a few pills and my period is late – should I see a doctor?

Full question:
I started taking Rigevidon a couple of months ago and have had no issues with it. I am currently on my week of not taking a pill and my period hasn’t started. During the month I forgot to take the pill twice but remembered and took two at the same time the next day (on two occasions). Should I go see a doctor or is it normal for me to not get a period?
