- Emergency Contraception
Emergency contraception can prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or if the contraception you have used has failed – e.g. a missed pill or split condom.
- Tablets/ “Morning After pill”: Orally administered pills taken within 72 hours (3 days) of sex, to prevent pregnancy. This form of contraception works by stopping or delaying the release of an egg.
- Non-hormonal IUCD Insertion: The intrauterine device (IUCD), is a small, T-shaped plastic and copper device that is put into a woman’s uterus, by a doctor or nurse. The copper is used to stop the egg from implanting in your uterus or being fertilized. The IUCD can be inserted up to 5 days after unprotected sex, or up to 5 days after the earliest time you could have ovulated, to prevent pregnancy. This method of contraception can be chosen to be left in & be used as an ongoing method of contraception.

The contraceptive injection releases the hormone progestogen into your bloodstream to prevent pregnancy, by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation) each month. The injection also thickens the cervical mucus, making it difficult for sperm to move through the cervix, and thins the lining of the womb as a fertilized egg is less likely to implant itself.
- Nur-Isterate: This injection lasts 8 weeks
- Depo Provera: This injection lasts 12 weeks
- Contraceptive Tablets
“The pill”, contains artificial versions of female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, which women produce naturally in their ovaries. This orally administered, form of contraception tries to stop a man’s sperm from reaching one of the woman’s eggs, also known as fertilization, by keeping the egg and sperm apart or by stopping the release of an egg (ovulation).

- Evra Patch
The contraceptive patch is a small sticky patch that releases hormones into your bloodstream, through your skin, to prevent pregnancy. The patch contains the same hormones as the contraceptive pills & also prevents the release of an egg each month (ovulation). It also thickens cervical mucus, making it more difficult for sperm to move through the cervix, and thins the womb lining so a fertilized egg is less likely to be able to implant itself. The patch is self-applicable at home.
