Emergency Contraception

Emergency contraception ( EC) can be used when you have had unprotected sex, sex without using contraception or think that your contraception might have failed.

They may stop ovulation ( release of egg), fertilisation of an egg or prevent a fertilised egg from implanting.

There are different types of emergency contraception:

  • The emergency intrauterine device ( IUD)
  • The emergency contraceptive.
  • Hormonal pills, EHC – containing – Ulipristal Acetate available in the UK as Ellaone.
  • Levonorgestrel available in the UK as Levonelle.

The emergency IUD is the most effective emergency contraception. It can be fitted within 5 days of unprotected sex or up to 5 days of your expected ovulation date.
