Morning after pill


Whether you've had unprotected sex or your usual method of contraception has failed, you might be considering getting the morning after pill.
Our pharmacists will have a private conversation with you to help you understand your options:


Levonelle

You can buy Levonelle if you're 16 or over.

Levonelle can be taken within 72 hours (three days) of having unprotected sex, but it's most effective if taken within 12 hours of having unprotected sex.

You take one Levonelle tablet. It works by stopping or delaying ovulation (when your ovaries release an egg).


EllaOne  http://www.ellaone.co.uk/

You can get ellaOne with a prescription from your GP, and you can buy it in our pharmacy if you're aged 18 or over. It is free of charge if it's on prescription.

EllaOne is only recommended in women aged 18 or over because its safety and effectiveness have only been confirmed in women in that age group.

EllaOne can be taken within 120 hours (five days) of having unprotected sex, but it's most effective if taken as soon as possible after having unprotected sex.

You take one ellaOne tablet. It stops or delays ovulation and makes it more difficult for a fertilised egg to implant into your womb.
