Emergency Contraceptive Pill


Postinor-1 is an Emergency Contraceptive Pill (ECP), also known as a 'morning after pill.' It is used to prevent pregnancy when taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. It is estimated that the ECP will prevent 85% of expected pregnancies. The sooner that you take it after unprotected intercourse, the more likely it is that the medication will work. Emergency contraception does not prevent a pregnancy in every instance.

One of our Pharmacists will ask you some questions in a private area to assess whether the ECP is right for you.
