Emergency Contraception

Emergency contraceptive pill advice is free to patients at our pharmacy.

If you are worried that the contraception you used might have failed, or if you have had sex without using contraception, you may want to use emergency contraception as a precautionary measure to avoid pregnancy. It is recommended that the emergency contraception needs to be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex. Our pharmacy has spacious consultation rooms so you can be assured that any discussion with your pharmacist remains private.

Our pharmacist will need to see the person that the emergency contraception is intended for and the pharmacist will need to ask a few questions regarding medical history in our private consultation room.

The emergency contraceptive pill can cause nausea, dizziness or fatigue, or give you a headache, tender breasts or abdominal pain. Taking this pill can cause your period to be earlier or later than expected.
