Did you know that you don’t need a prescription for the morning after pill? So this means you don’t have to visit your doctor. Oral emergency contraception is available directory from your pharmacist. It is available from most pharmacy stores and you can even order it online! The video above explains how.
I need it now
If your regular method of contraception has failed, or you have had unprotected sex, then ellaOne® may be an option for you. ellaOne®, the UK’s most effective morning after pill*, is available to order online. It needs to be taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex.
Just in case
Alternatively, you may not need the morning after pill right now, but you’re thinking about it as a back up in the future to your regular contraception (for example if you rely on condoms, or you are planning to travel abroad etc).
You can also get emergency contraception from your GP, Family Planning Clinic, walk-in centre, or out of hours services.
The pharmacist or healthcare professional will be able to advise which option is most suitable for you.
