Emergency Contraception

If you have had sex without using any form of contraception or you think your method may have failed, you should attend the UEA Medical Centre as soon as possible. 

If we are closed, this service is still available from the Out of Hours Service by phoning 111 (free from landlines and mobiles).  Alternatively, you can visit you local Family Planning Service or Pharmacy. 

Treatment must start as soon as possible - usually up to 72 hours for the emergency pill and up to 5 days for the IUD. 

Remember - THE SOONER THE BETTER - do not leave it until the last minute to seek advice in this situation.  You can see the Treatment Room Nurse (book on day clinic) for emergency contraception.
