Emergency Contraception

Start a diagnosis

If you have unprotected sex but do not wish to become pregnant, you may need emergency contraception.

This is the term used for contraception used AFTER you have already had sex. The options available must be used within 5 days after the unprotected sex.

There are two types of pills which have a good chance of preventing pregnancy, sometimes called the "morning after pill".
