I need Emergency Contraception

Emergency Contraception can be taken after unprotected sex (condom split, missed pill, didn't use any contraception to prevent pregnancy).

It is sometimes called the "morning after pill" but can be taken up to 72 hours (three days) after unprotected sex.

If you have had unprotected sex more than 72 hours ago, you can still access Emergency Contraception or an Emergency IUD (sometimes called a coil) up to five days after unprotected sex from Morley Street CASH clinic.

Emergency Contraception is available from your GP (doctor) for free. You can make an emergency appointment and you do not need to tell the receptionist what you need.
