Emergency Contraception Counselling
Our non judgemental pharmacists are able to provide you with advice if there is a risk of unplanned pregnancy.
Our pharmacists are ideal to speak to in this situation. Everyone has different needs and concerns and we will guide you through your options, medication and any side-effects from the medication. It may be an anxious time for you and we will do our best to offer as much information that you need to make an informed decision. Discreet and individual attention assured.
Things to remember
- Emergency contraception can prevent an unplanned pregnancy after having unprotected sex.
- It is best to take emergency contraception as soon as possible, ideally within 24 hours of having sex, but it still works well within 96 hours (four days). You can take it within 96 to 120 hours (five days), but it will not be very effective.
- Emergency contraception is around 85 per cent effective in preventing an unplanned pregnancy.
