Emergency contraception pills need to be taken within 72 hours (3 days) of having unprotected sex. They are more effective the sooner you take them, and the pills are safe to use.

Women of all ages can get emergency contraception from:

Family Planning Clinic

NHS Walk-In Centre

Brook Centre

Additionally, emergency contraceptive pills are sold in chemists (such as Boots) to women over the age of 16 and normally cost £24.
