Emergency Contraception (EC)

Emergency contraception is used as soon as possible after unprotected sex or when your regular method of contraception has failed.

If you have had unprotected sex in the last 5 days, your condom has failed or if you have forgotten to use your normal method of contraception (e.g. the pill, contraceptive patch or you are late getting your injection) and you don’t wish to fall pregnant, then you may need emergency contraception.

Emergency contraception is available free of charge from all pharmacies, your GP and Highland Sexual Health.

If you would like to attend Highland Sexual Health for emergency contraception, please phone us on 01463 888300.
