Emergency Contraception Advice

Emergency contraception can prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or if your contraceptive method has failed – for example,

  • a condom has split
  • you’ve missed a pill
  • You are taking a prescribed medication which has reduced the effectiveness of your hormonal contraception
  • Your hormonal contraception has been made less effectiveness by sickness and/or diarrhoea

There are two types:

The emergency contraceptive pill (sometimes called the morning after pill)
The IUD (intrauterine device, or coil)

You can access EC (Emergency Contraception) at local Pharmacies for example: Lloyds, Superdrug, Boots and many more

Access the internet to find local Pharmacies using a search engine.
