If you or your partner didn’t use a condom or the condom split or came off during sex you will need to think about what to do next.
You can take emergency contraception but this needs to be done as soon as possible after sex. If you don’t manage to take it within 5 days after sex then you can have an emergency coil fitted on the 5th day.
If you don’t access any kind of emergency contraception within 5 days and think you may be pregnant then you can talk to someone in confidence about your options. You can speak to your own doctor or you can go to Victoria Health Centre and speak to a nurse or doctor there. They will be able to tell you what is involved in an abortion or discuss with you continuing with the pregnancy.
The British Pregnancy Advisory Service – (BPAS) also offer help and advice on pregnancy and abortion. Call 03457 30 40 30 for information.
