Emergency Contraceptive Pill (ECP)

Reduce the risk of pregnancy following contraceptive failure or unprotected sex with the emergency contraceptive pill ( ECP or morning after pill )

No appointment necessary.

Just come into the pharmacy. In our private consulting room one of our pharmacists will have a friendly consultation with you to assess whether the ECP  is right for you.

Postinor-1 is an Emergency Contraceptive Pill (ECP), also known as a 'morning after pill. Taken as a single tablet. It is used to prevent pregnancy when taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. It is estimated that the ECP will prevent 85% of expected pregnancies. The sooner that you take it after unprotected intercourse, the more likely it is that the medication will work. Emergency contraception does not prevent a pregnancy in every instance.
