What is Emergency Contraception?

There are two types of emergency contraception

  • Emergency contraceptive pills (morning after pill)
  • IUD (intrauterine device)

Emergency contraception pills can be used to help prevent an unwanted pregnancy up to five days after unprotected sex. An emergency IUD possibly longer.

Emergency contraception can be used if a contraceptive method fails, for instance a condom splits or a pill is forgotten or taken late, or if no contraception is used (i.e. 'unprotected' sex).
