Emergency contraception

Maple Leaf is a local independent community pharmacy that offers an emergency contraception service in Twickenham, Richmond, Isleworth, Whitton, and Hampton. We offer highly effective contraceptive medicines known as the morning after pill, emergency contraceptive pill or birth control pills.

Emergency contraception is a process of avoiding unwanted pregnancy if you have had intercourse without using birth control or if your contraception method has failed. You must use a pregnancy pill as soon as possible after unprotected sex. Emergency contraception pills are completely different from the abortion pill. If you are already pregnant, then even the best contraceptive pill will not stop or harm your pregnancy. Emergency contraception works correctly when used immediately after unprotected intercourse. If you are unable to take it right away, it can still work to prevent pregnancy if taken within 3-5 days after unprotected intercourse.

Our experienced pharmacists have the knowledge and confidence to provide guidance to patients regarding various methods of emergency contraception, their effectiveness, and how to use them correctly. We follow standardised protocols at our pharmacy when patients are seeking emergency contraception.

Residents of Twickenham, Richmond, Isleworth, Whitton, and Hampton can purchase emergency contraception instantly from Maple Leaf pharmacy. Our experts ask a few questions to rule out an established pregnancy and evaluate the need for medication. They also encourage women to seek clinical care if needed. Our pharmacy is easily accessible to the residents of Twickenham.
