I have had unprotected sex or the condom broke

If you 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 free of charge from our service, please telephone 01904 721111 for a same day access slot or see our clinics and services page for our Yong Person's Queue and Wait times.

You can also get emergency contraception 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

City of York Pharmacies provide emergency contraception pills to buy over the counter for £15-£35
