What is Emergency Contraception, and what options are available? - Greenfield Pharmacy, Greenfield

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.

Small but friendly, this store has a Post Office franchise (which recently re-opened), but with limited opening hours. Only one customer is allowed at one time, though, and you must wear a face mask.

I had a query re home delivery for members of my family who are house bound? Spoke to Lynne, who was able to sort it out with the help of the Pharmacy team for them to be included on the prescription Home Delivery Service. There was no fuss, no awkward questions, just a friendly chat & explaining how it all works? Thank you so much. Take care & stay safe. Tx
