Despite the fact that we can supply most forms of contraception, there may be occasions when people do not take precautions during sexual intercourse. This can cause worry until the next period. Occasionally, when a period doesnt come you can be faced with the dilemma of whether to request an abortion or continue with an unplanned pregnancy.
The morning after pill can, in fact, be used up to 72 hours (three days) after unprotected sex, although the sooner it is taken the more effective it is. Because of this, in addition to the practice offering the morning after pill, it is also available from local chemists free of charge. Please contact them for further details. There is also an alternative, depending on when your last period was or if you cannot take the pill. If this happens to you please come to the surgery and see the doctor or the nurse on the next working day. We can help.
