Emergency Contraception

COVID-19 Update

Oral emergency contraception should be taken as soon as possible but can still work up to 5 days after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. 

This can be accessed from your local Pharmacy free of charge.

If you are more than 5 days since unprotected sex you may still be eligible for a copper coil. Some women choose a copper coil as emergency contraception even if unprotected sex was within the last 5 days. It can also be continued as ongoing contraception. If you would consider a copper coil phone Sexual Health Fife Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 4pm on 01592 64 79 79
