Emergency Contraception

If you have had sex without using contraception or you think your method might have failed, there are two methods you can use.

  • The emergency hormonal pill – must be taken up to three days (72 hours) after sex. It is more effective the earlier it is taken after sex.
  • An IUD – must be fitted up to five days after sex, or up to five days after the earliest time you could have released an egg (ovulation)
