I need the Emergency Pill

If you have had sex without a condom or think it might have failed and you are not using any other contraception method you can use emergency contraception, often called ‘morning after pill’ or ‘EC’. This is available from:

  • Most Pharmacies
  • GP Surgeries
  • Sexual Health Services

You can get this up to 72 hours (3 days) after sex; however there are other methods available which work up to 120 hours (5 days) after sex. The sooner you get emergency contraception the better.
