Emergency Contraception

If you have had unprotected sex in the last 5 days, or if your condom has ripped or burst or you forgot to take your contraception pill, emergency contraception will usually prevent pregnancy.

You can get advice and free emergency contraception from a Sandyford Clinic. The sooner you do this the better.

To arrange an appointment  phone 0141 211 8130. The line is open Mondays to Fridays from 8.30am - 4.15pm, except public holidays.

  • The following places can also give you advice and free emergency contraception:
    Your  GP
  • Most pharmacies  (chemist shops)
  • Some hospital accident and emergency departments
  • Most minor injury units

NHS 24  has further details or call on 111.

Emergency contraception does not protect you from sexually transmitted infections.
