Sexual health pharmacy services
Having healthy, pleasurable sex is an important part of life for many people. But if you’re sexually active, protecting yourself against infections (STIs) and unplanned pregnancies is essential. Of course, this is all too easily overlooked in the heat of the moment, but it’s important to safeguard your future health.
Accidents happen and if you’ve had unprotected sex and are at risk of pregnancy, it’s nothing to be embarrassed about though. Your pharmacist can talk you through options for emergency contraception. Health professions tend not to use the term ‘morning after pill’ because while emergency contraception is more effective if used as soon as possible after unprotected sex, it can be used up to five days after unprotected sex.
