Emergency Contraception

Emergency contraception is a safe and effective way to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Many women make the responsible decision to control their reproductive health in this way when their usual method of contraception fails. Your StayWell Pharmacists are here to support you with the upmost discretion and can discuss your needs or concerns in the privacy of our consultation room.

Our Pharmacist will take you through a brief questionnaire in private to determine that the medication is suitable and safe for you to take. You will be asked when the occasion of the unprotected sex occurred, when your last period was, what -if any – medications or vitamins you take and whether or not you have any medical conditions. This generally takes no longer than five minutes.

The only cost you will pay is the price of the medication itself, which varies by brand.
