Emergency contraception (the ‘morning after’ pill)?

Emergency contraception can be taken if you had sex without using condoms or other contraception or if you think your contraception has failed.

There are two types of emergency contraception:

1. Emergency contraceptive pill (or morning-after-pill)

  • Levonelle – can be taken up to 72 hours (3 days) after sex
  • EllaOne – can be taken up to 120 hours (5 days) after sex
  • Free for under 25’s from our clinics or some chemists across Camden & Islington.
  • Find your nearest chemist Emergency Contraception (PDF)

2. Intrauterine device (IUD or coil)

  • Can be inserted up to 120 hours (5 days) after sex, or or up to 5 days after the earliest time you could have ovulated.

Available at Margaret Pyke/Mortimer Market and the Archway Centre.
