Emergency Contraception

When you go for emergency contraception, staff will need to ask you a couple of personal questions (name, date of birth) to help you best. You’ll also be asked other questions when you last had sex, and when your last period was. You should expect to discuss this in private. Staff will be caring and understanding.

It might be worth phoning the pharmacy beforehand, just to check that they have someone who’s accredited / able to give you the necessary meds.

There’s a chance you’ll have to wait, or that the right person to serve you isn’t available. Think of a plan beforehand – take a magazine to read while you wait, and call ahead to the service to check the right person’s in before taking the trip.

Emergency contraception is available to you without the consent of your parent or guardian.
