If you have had unprotected sex, or your usual method of contraception has failed, there are now 3 methods of emergency contraception available. Visit one of our clinics to discuss your options.
There are 2 types of emergency contraception pills- one which can be taken up to 3 days after unprotected sex and the other which can be taken up to 5 days after unprotected sex. It is more effective the sooner you take it.

If you have had unprotected sex then you may have put yourself at risk of an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infections) so it’s a good idea to get tested for STI’s.
