Emergency Contraception

If you require emergency contraception, walk in or call your local clinic during opening hours.


If we are not open, you can get emergency contraception from your GP or local pharmacy.


If you have had unprotected sex, or your usual method of contraception has failed, the Northern are able to provide all 3 options for emergency contraception which includes pills and a copper IUD. The most effective form of emergency contraception is the copper coil –IUD which can be fitted in a clinic up to 5 days after unprotected sex, or 5 days after ovulation.
