Emergency contraception

Many people will know emergency contraception as ‘the morning after pill’. This is used by a woman to reduce the risk of pregnancy after having unprotected sex, or if another method of contraception has failed, eg, if a condom splits or you have missed a pill. However, it does not protect against STIs.

If you need emergency contraception, please walk in or book an appointment at any of our clinics.
