Empowering Choices with the Morning After Pill

The Morning After Pill, also known as Emergency Contraception, is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. It’s not intended to be a regular form of contraception but serves as a backup option when unexpected situations arise.

At King Street Pharmacy, we recognise the importance of having access to this option without judgment or barriers. Our compassionate team is here to guide you through the process, offering a discreet and supportive environment.

How Does it Work?

The Morning After Pill primarily works by delaying ovulation, preventing fertilisation of the egg, or altering the lining of the uterus to inhibit implantation. It is most effective when taken as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse, but it can still be beneficial up to 72 hours afterwards, depending on the specific type of pill.

Our knowledgeable pharmacists are here to explain the mechanism of action, ensuring you have a clear understanding of how the Morning After Pill works and its efficacy in different situations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take the Morning After Pill more than once in a cycle?

The Morning After Pill is designed for occasional use, and it is not recommended as a regular contraceptive method. If you find yourself needing emergency contraception frequently, our team can discuss more suitable, long-term options tailored to your needs.

Is the Morning After Pill the same as the abortion pill?

No, the Morning After Pill and the abortion pill (medication abortion) are different. The Morning After Pill works to prevent pregnancy, while the abortion pill terminates an existing pregnancy. Our team is here to clarify any misconceptions and provide accurate information.

Does the Morning After Pill protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs)?

No, the Morning After Pill does not provide protection against STIs. It is solely designed to prevent pregnancy. We emphasise the importance of using barrier methods like condoms to reduce the risk of STIs.

Can I get the Morning After Pill without a prescription?

Yes, the Morning After Pill is available over-the-counter at our pharmacy. Our team is ready to assist you with any questions you may have and provide the support you need during this time.
