Finding a method of contraception that suits you is an important way to plan for the future and prevent unplanned pregnancies. Take a look at your options.

 

Emergency contraception

If you've had sex without contraception or you think it didn't work, the emergency contraceptive pill or the IUD (intrauterine device) are safe and effective ways to prevent pregnancy.

Get them for free at:

  • sexual health and contraception clinics
  • most GPs
  • some pharmacies (under 25s only)
