I need emergency contraception

If you have had recent unprotected sex and you don’t want to be pregnant you need to act as soon as possible.

The most effective form of emergency contraception is having a coil inserted.

Emergency contraception pills work best the sooner you can take them. Some pills can be taken up to 5 days after unprotected sex.

You can get the emergency coil and contraceptive pills from our service and from the following places:

Free from GPs (you do not need to be registered with the GP you visit but it is best to ring first to confirm that they offer it).

GP out of Hours Service- call NHS 111 for advice.

North Yorkshire Pharmacies provide emergency contraception pills to buy over the counter for £15 - £35.

Some North Yorkshire pharmacies are able to issue emergency hormonal contraception for free for those under 25. Please check with your pharmacy before attending.
