I need emergency contraception

I need emergency contraception

Emergency contraception could be taken orally which is normally called the morning after pill. It is best taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex.

It is likely to be easier and faster to go to your local pharmacy. You may be able to get this free of charge (depending on age and restrictions in your local area). If you can't access this free of charge, you can purchase it from your pharmacy.

If you cannot get this from the pharmacy then please book an emergency contraception appointment online.

Our service

We provide a full range of contraception including routine long-acting reversible contraception (LARC).

We are continuing to provide click and collect service for contraceptive pills, patch and vaginal ring. You may be asked to come to the clinic to measure your blood pressure height and weight.

I was asked to continue using Cu IUD, IUS or implant

If you were asked to continue using your contraceptive method as per advice from the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH), please get in touch with us near to the end of extension period.

I need the contraceptive injection

You can book a consultation first and you will be booked a further appointment. If it is 14 weeks or more since your last injection (Depo-Provera or Sayana press), please use condoms and book a consultation. We can now offer injectable contraception which can be self-administered at home.

I am unable to book an appointment

If you are unable to book an appointment online, you can call us. Please let us know if you have any additional needs such as interpreter service or sign language.

You can also request a prescription for contraceptive pills/patch/vaginal ring from your GP (they will probably do this over the phone or by e-consult). 

You can register with Echo who will arrange for your medication from your GP to be sent to you by post. This is a free NHS service for repeat prescriptions.
