‘Morning After’ contraception works best when taken within 24 hours although it is still effective up to 72 hours after sexual intercourse. You can book to see a practice nurse or a doctor if you need emergency contraception. It will help you to get an emergency appointment if you can tell the receptionist why you need the appointment. The ‘morning after’ pill is also available over the counter at the chemist.

Pre-conceptual advice is available from the Practice Midwife or from your own doctor. Please ask the receptionist to make an appointment.
