Emergency Contraception - Wesham Pharmacy, Preston

Emergency contraception helps to prevent pregnancy after having unprotected sex or if the contraception you and your partner have used has become impaired. To be effective, emergency contraception should be used as soon as possible – within the 72 hour window after unprotected sex.

 

The emergency contraceptive pill – the “morning-after pill”

 

The morning-after pill is more effective the earlier you take it. Some brands of the morning-after pill vary in the time that they are effective, from 3 days to 5 days. The emergency pill doesn’t usually produce side effects, but in some cases, someone may experience headaches, stomach pain and sickness.

 

If your condom has split during sex and contact has been made between you and your partner or you’ve missed a birth control pill, then emergency contraception should be taken as soon as possible. Call our pharmacist for more details.

Brilliant. I was on holiday nearby and left my prescribed meds at home. I phoned up and they were ready for me by the time I arrived at the pharmacy. Excellent service, wish it was more local to me!

Great place to have your COVID Vaccine - first class service, professional and efficient, even though I hadn't worn a top that allowed them to get to the very top of my arm easily to give me my jab! I won't make that mistake again 🙂
