Emergency Contraception

If you have had unprotected sex, a condom has split or you have forgotten to take your regular method of contraception then you may be at risk of an unplanned pregnancy. If you are under 25 you can get emergency contraception free from all pharmacies listed below, and all you need to do is drop in and see one. At your visit, you will see a trained pharmacist in a private environment, and he or she will talk to you about the treatment, as there are 2 types of emergency contraceptive pill:
Levonelle is the most commonly used. It can be taken up to three days (72 hours) after having unprotected sex, and is available free of charge on prescription, or at the pharmacies listed below. It can also be brought at other pharmacies throughout Torbay.
ellaOne is a newer type of emergency contraceptive pill that can be taken up to five days (120 hours) after having unprotected sex. It is only available on prescription and only recommended for women over the age of 18.
Emergency Contraception must be taken as soon as possible and the sooner the better - if it's been over 72 hours contact the Sexual Medicine Service on 01803 656500 who may still be able to help.
It is always worth calling the pharmacy before had to make sure that a trained Pharmacist is available.
Emergency contraception can also be obtained from the sexual medicine service.
