Emergency Contraception (The Morning After Pill)

No matter how well prepared you are, everyone has those times where things just don’t go quite to plan. If your regular contraception didn’t work as it should and you need a plan b, emergency contraception can be used to prevent pregnancy and give you peace of mind. When used within the first 72 hours of unprotected sex, the emergency contraceptive pill will provide up to 84-98% effective protection.

Because of this time limit, we don’t recommend getting your emergency contraception online if you’ve had unprotected sex recently, as it may not arrive in time. We’re here so you can stock up and have a morning after pill waiting in the wings if things don’t go exactly as planned, so you can take your contraception when it’s most effective.

How does emergency contraception work?

The emergency contraceptive pill, which is also known as the morning after pill, works by keeping an egg from being released from your ovaries and also makes it harder for sperm to fertilise any eggs that have been released.

You need to take them as soon as you can after having unprotected sex, with levonorgestrel pills needing to be taken within 3 days and ellaOne needing to be taken within 5 days to be effective.

We understand that getting to the pharmacy for the morning after pill can be tricky, and the process of speaking to the pharmacist and getting the pill from them can be uncomfortable, especially if you like your privacy or find that your pharmacist isn’t the friendliest person.

Luckily, pills like Levonelle, levonorgestrel, and ellaOne can be obtained in advance and kept in your medicine cabinet as a backup, so you can take one as soon as possible if you get caught out.

That’s why we keep them available for delivery, so you can stock up and make sure that you’re prepared for anything.
