Emergency Contraception

Emergency Contraception

If you have sex without using contraception, or if there is a risk that your contraception may have failed (eg, split condom, forgotten a pill), then you can use emergency contraception to prevent a pregnancy.  

What is emergency contraception?

Emergency contraception is either an emergency pill or a copper coil which has a longer period of opportunity. It is sometimes known as the ‘morning after pill’ but this is a bit confusing because it can be taken up to three to five days after unprotected sex.
