Morning After Pill
What is emergency contraception?
Emergency contraception (also known as the morning after pill) can be taken if you want to avoid an unplanned pregnancy.
You might want to do this if you have had sex without using contraception, or if contraception has failed — for example if a condom wasn’t effective or you missed taking your regular contraceptive pill.
There are two types of hormonal emergency contraception; the three day pill and the five day pill.
Emergency contraception (morning after pill) is more effective the sooner taken after you have had unprotected sex.
Please Note that Emergency contraception does not provide any protection from sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Talk to your GP, family planning clinic or pharmacist about the best emergency contraception option for you.
Since 1 July 2017, valid medical card holders can get emergency contraception directly from us and paid for by the GMS scheme.
