What is Emergency contraception?

The emergency contraception (also called “the morning after pill”) is a pill that you take to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or when regular contraception have failed – for example, a condom has split or you have missed a pill

It can be effective up to 120 hours after unprotected sex but is more effective the sooner you use it.

Emergency contraception is available from our pharmacies without a prescription to those over 17 years of age, subject to meeting certain criteria.

How does emergency contraception work?

Emergency oral contraception works primarily by delaying ovulation. These hormone-based medications may prevent pregnancy by temporarily blocking eggs from being released, by stopping fertilization, or by keeping a fertilized egg from becoming implanted in the uterus.

Remember, emergency contraception cannot protect against sexually transmitted disease. No morning after pill is safe to be used on a regular basis and should be used for emergency only.

If you have any questions about contraception or STI’s, you should speak to our pharmacist or visit

Some of the reasons it may not be suitable to supply emergency contraception for click and collect include:

  • Too much time has passed for the medicine to be effective
  • You are taking another medicine that may interact with emergency contraception
  • You have an existing medical condition that means it is not safe to take emergency contraception
  • You are under the age of 17.

You need to take the emergency contraceptive pill within 3 days (Levonelle) or 5 days (ellaOne) of unprotected sex for it to be effective – the sooner you take it, the more effective it'll be.
