Emergency contraception

If you’ve forgotten to take your pill, your condom split or you’ve had unprotected sex in the last 72 hours then you may need emergency contraception, and the sooner you take it the better.

Available for free at the above contraception clinics and some local pharmacies. Patients can also purchase from the chemist at a cost of approximately £25.
If you’ve had unprotected sex or your condom failed, it is also really important to consider your risk for sexually transmitted infections and to think about your long-term contraception needs. Please phone the surgery to book an emergency appointment.

If you miss the 72 hours it is still possible to have an emergency coil fitted up to five days after unprotected sex. You can have an emergency coil fitted for free at your local sexual health clinic.
