Emergency hormonal contraception commonly known as the “morning after pill” is available from Periville Chemist either with or without a prescription.
If you need the morning after pill you can speak with a Pharmacist, either in the Pharmacy, or informally by phone. After a more formal, but discreet and private consultation, within the Pharmacy, if it is considered appropriate and safe, we can provide you with this form of contraception.
We will never ask you about the circumstances which have led to you seeking contraception advice but we will need to ask you some general medical questions to make sure the morning after pill is suitable for you to take.
The Morning after pill is extremely safe with no serious side effects and if it was to fail, and you become pregnant, it has not been shown to affect the pregnancy or harm the developing baby in anyway. The morning after pill may be provided free of charge after a consultation with the pharmacist.
Remember this form of contraception should not be used on a regular basis as a first choice method of contraception.
At Baggaley Chemist we stock a full range of contraceptive products and our Pharmacy staff can advise you on the many options available to you.
