Emergency Contraception

What is Emergency Hormonal Contraception (The Morning After Pill)?

VIDEO: GP Surgery, Emergency Hormonal Contraception

If you have had sex without using contraception or you think your contraception may have failed you can act quickly to prevent a pregnancy.

Emergency Hormonal Contraception (EHC) pills (sometimes called ‘the morning after pill’) are very effective at stopping a pregnancy from happening, but you must take them within 72 hours (3 days). They are most effective if taken within 12 hours, therefore it is important to be aware of where to get this from as soon as possible. However, if more than 72 hours (3 days) have passed you may have other options.

You can access other contraceptive options to prevent pregnancy up to 5 days after unprotected sex but you need to attend City Wise or one of our sexual health and contraceptive clinics by calling 0113 3057884. Contact your local contraception clinic for details – click here.

REMEMBER THOUGH if you’ve had unprotected sex you’re also at risk of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI’s) so you need to have a check-up. Get in touch with City Wise or The Leeds Centre for Sexual Health to make an appointment or drop into one of their walk in clinics.

Local Pharmacies

All the pharmacies below provide free emergency contraception (morning after pill), free pregnancy tests and Chlamydia tests to under 25’s. They will also give you advice and information about STI testing and contraception. It is worth ringing some of the bigger stores before you go to check there is a trained pharmacist available that day.

If the pharmacy area is busy and it is not easy to talk about your sexual health, ask to speak to the pharmacist in the private consultation area.
