Emergency Contraception Pill

What is Emergency Contraception, and what options are available? - Allestree Pharmacy, Derby

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.

Great pharmacy with friendly and helpful staff who don’t ignore you when you enter. It is a bit on the small side and with Covid-19 restrictions can only allow 2 in the shop at any one time. No big deal really in the current climate. One star off for the access and parking. Can be difficult to find a car space and the entry/exit is straight onto the busy A6 road which can be a bit scary to say the least. I tend to park close by and walk where possible. Apart from this minor issue, I am really pleased that I moved from another local pharmacy to this one and now have my repeat prescriptions sent there every time. Thanks for a great service.
