Got a question about our pharmacy service?

How will I know if my emergency contraception has worked?

It’s recommended to have a pregnancy test three weeks after taking emergency contraception or having the IUD fitted. If the test is negative, the emergency contraception has worked.

I have had one emergency pill in the last 30 days. Can I have another?

In some cases it can be but it depends on individual circumstances. To determine what is right for you speak to one of our pharmacists.

Will the morning after pill affect my fertility?

No, it doesn’t affect your long-term fertility. You can become pregnant in the future.

Should I get the morning after pill if I miss my normal pill?

This depends on the type of normal pill you are taking. Read the missed pill section of the pill’s leaflet for further instructions.

If you don’t have the leaflet or are concerned contact us and we will be more than happy to give advice.

How soon after sex do I need to take the morning after pill?

The sooner you take it, the more effective it is. Ideally, within 24 hours of unprotected sex, but it can be taken up to 72 hours (three days) for Levonorgestrel-based pills, and up to 120 hours (five days) for Ulipristal acetate.

How effective is the morning after pill?

Effectiveness depends on how quickly it's taken after unprotected sex. It's more effective the sooner you take it but is not 100% guaranteed to prevent pregnancy.

Flu and Covid Vaccination
Perfect all round. Convenient location, easy booking process online, easy, free parking. Very well organised service, great, friendly staff and even saw me straightaway having turned up an hour early by mistake. Much quicker than going to the GP, will definitely use again.

My wife and I have just had the flu vaccination and are both really impressed by the highly efficient service. This pharmacy was very well laid out to do the vaccinations and maintain adequate distancing and minimal waiting. The staff who attended to us were well organised, very friendly and professional. We are very happy with our experience.
