If you have had unprotected sex, or a condom has split, there is a chance that you could be pregnant. Emergency contraception can prevent an unwanted pregnancy. There are pills, which if taken within 72 hours, will have good effect; there are others that could be given later than 72 hours, it will depend where you are within your menstrual cycle. There could also be an option of having a coil fitted. We would recommend that you telephone for advice or call in as soon as possible. Use the button below.
