Sexual health and infections

If you think you may have had contact with a sexual infection, you can either:

Emergency contraception

If you think you may be at risk of an unwanted pregnancy following intercourse:
  • The practice can provide emergency contraception, either in the form of the morning-after pill or a copper coil (intra-uterine device).
  • The morning-after pill can be obtained direct from pharmacies, for a fee, so you may choose not to come to us since it is more effective the sooner it is taken.

For more information on LARC (Long-Acting Reversible Contraception) and the morning-after pill visit the FPA, Uxbridge Health Centre and Levonelle websites.

Termination of pregnancy
