The morning after pill is used to provide an emergency contraceptive to prevent a pregnancy following unprotected sex. Emergency contraceptives are also used following a failure of your regular contraceptive method such as missing your pill or having a condom split.
Kalmak Chemists Ltd t/a Osbon Pharmacy offer our customers throughout Southwark, Lambeth, Waterloo or South East London a convenient and affordable method of ensuring that you are protected against pregnancy as a result of unprotected sex.
How does the Morning After Pill work?
The morning after pill works by delaying or preventing ovulation. The two main types of morning after pill are Levonelle and ellaOne. Levonelle uses a synthetic version of the hormone progesterone (levonorgestrel) to effect the ability of your body to ovulate. ellaOne stops the normal working of progesterone within your body as it contains ulipristal acetate.
The morning after pill should be taken as soon as possible following unprotected sex, Levonelle should be used within 72 hours and ellaOne should be taken within 120 hours following unprotected sex.
Pregnancy Tests in Waterloo and Southwark
A pregnancy test can be carried out after the first day following a missed period. You will carry out your pregnancy test on a urine sample collected on the day which will be about two weeks following conception.
Pregnancy tests work by detecting the hormone hCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) which begins to be produced after six days following fertilisation. A pregnancy test which gives a positive result is almost always correct. If you get a negative result from your pregnancy test, but you still think that you may be pregnant, you should try again after 7 days before consulting your GP.
