Emergency contraception (sometimes known as the morning after pill).
The sooner you take it the more effective it is. Drop-in is open Monday to Friday between 2 – 6pm and on Saturday between 1 – 4pm. Different types of emergency contraception can be taken up to five days after having unprotected sex, but the sooner you take it the better it works. Talk to a member of staff on the phone or in Drop-in if you are unsure of the choices available to you.
You can also get emergency contraception and advice from:
- GP (your own doctor)
- NHS 24 (Ph: 111)
- Your local chemist/Pharmacy (e.g. Boots or Superdrug). The service here is confidential, private and free even if you are under 16.
- Tayside Sexual and Reproductive Health Service, Ninewells Hospital – for times click here
