Emergency Contraception

Emergency Contraception is a safe, responsible and effective method of preventing pregnancy when regular contraception has failed or if no contraception was used at all. Emergency contraception is available at Life Pharmacies without a doctor’s prescription, subject to meeting certain criteria.

If you think you may need emergency contraception, it is advised to attend your pharmacy promptly as emergency contraception can be more effective the sooner you take it. Emergency contraception does not protect against sexually transmitted infections. To find out more information on Emergency Contraception and STIs, talk to your local Life Pharmacist.
