Emergency Contraception Dispensing
What is Emergency Contraception? Emergency contraception is a secondary method or ‘back-up’ contraceptive. It can be used if you want to avoid an unplanned pregnancy after you have had sex without using contraception or if contraception has failed (e.g. the condom slipped or you missed a pill). Emergency contraception is more effective the sooner you take it after having unprotected sex. Emergency contraception does not provide any protection from sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Call into us to find out your choices with emergency contraceptives and ask for a private and consultation about the best option for you.
