Asking for emergency contraception may be disconcerting, but here at Midland Health, we’ll make things easy by offering several options dispensed quickly and discretely. The most common methods of emergency contraception are;

  • Levonelle (tablet)– can be taken within 72 hours of having unprotected sex, however, is most effective up to 12 hours after. Girls under 16 will need a consultation for a prescription of Levonelle.
  • ellaOne (tablet) – can be taken within 120 hours of having unprotected sex, however, it is most effective as soon as possible.

Copper Coil – can be inserted up to 5 days after unprotected sex and then be kept in for 10 years as a continued method of contraception if you would like.
