Planning what to say

Asking your pharmacist for the morning after pill

If you need emergency contraception, it may be helpful to plan what you are going to say to the pharmacist. Here are some ideas:

  • “I’d like the emergency contraceptive pill please.”
  • “I’d like the morning after pill please.”
  • “I’ve had a contraceptive mishap and I’d like the morning after pill please.”
  • “Can I talk to someone about the morning after pill please?”

Take somebody with you if it makes you feel more comfortable.
