Emergency Contraception

Home Brockwood Pharmacy Services Emergency Contraception

Emergency Contraception - Brockwood Pharmacy, Dorking

Emergency contraception helps to prevent pregnancy after having unprotected sex or if the contraception you and your partner have used has become impaired. To be effective, emergency contraception should be used as soon as possible – within the 72 hour window after unprotected sex.

 

The emergency contraceptive pill – the “morning-after pill”

 

The morning-after pill is more effective the earlier you take it. Some brands of the morning-after pill vary in the time that they are effective, from 3 days to 5 days. The emergency pill doesn’t usually produce side effects, but in some cases, someone may experience headaches, stomach pain and sickness.

 

If your condom has split during sex and contact has been made between you and your partner or you’ve missed a birth control pill, then emergency contraception should be taken as soon as possible. Call our pharmacist for more details.

All the staff at Brockwood, are very kind, understanding and very helpful. My mother - In law has a monthly prescription, which is already for me to collect every month without any problems at all. When she was started on a new drug, the staff told me when she was to be gaven these tablets, and explained any possible effects to look out for. Would recommend Brockwood Pharmacy/ and practice to friends. ?% Thank you to all the staff.

What a friendly, helpful and professional service! There was a recent shortage of a critical medication for me and my prescription was unable to be fulfilled, however, they went out of their way and phoned all the the other pharmacies in Dorking to see if the item could be sourced. Alas, no luck (Brexit?) but they were able to suggest an alternative and advise on the course of action to enable me to source it. To my great relief the alternative medication was supplied the next day. I am eternally grateful. Thanks:-)
