Morning after pills (emergency contraception) we offer

Emergency contraception — don’t delay

If you’ve had unprotected sex, something went wrong with your contraception or you forgot to take your regular pill, the morning after pill can reduce your risk of unplanned pregnancy. You should take it as soon as possible for it to be most effective, and within five days (three days for levonorgestrel).

If treatment is suitable for you, you can get it quickly and discreetly. There’s no need for a face-to-face discussion and same-day collection is available if you order before 1pm.

GET STARTED

Depending on your circumstances, it might be faster to get emergency contraception over-the-counter at your local pharmacy. The pharmacist will need to ask you some questions.
