why dont you go and get the morning after pill if you are worried? not sure but can you get it from the chemist?

Phone your surgery for emergency contraception. They will either prescribe the morning-after pill (which works for a couple of days after unprotected sex) or fit an IUD which prevents implantation.

no it can make you feel a bit sick, but ill no
Not half as sick as pregnancy!

Ohhelp - The pill won't make you ill.... it just gave me PMT! But get it now.... you can buy it over the counter at teh pharmacists for £20.

ohhelp Tue 14-Jun-05 13:56:37

£20? ouch

Ohhelp, I don't know whether this applies but I understood that you couldn't take MAP if you were b'feeding, or at least you'd have to discard the milk for a few days after taking it. You have up to ,at least, 72 hours I think to have an IUD fitted , and if it were something you were considering anyway it might be an alternative option for you.

i took it once when I was 19 and I was given sea sickness tablets at sme time to help with the naseau. I thinkj they have improved the pill since and don't think it makes you sick anymore.

Better a morning of feeling a bit sick than an unwanted pregnancy so get that pill down you.

Is this your most-likely-to-be-fertile time, if you are regular? Was it a comnom with spermicide?

I think you can still be prescribed the MAP by your GP for a normal prescription charge, but obviously the pharmacy could be quicker. £25 I think TBH. Ring the surgery first, maybe ask the nurse to call you back?

QueenFlounce Thu 16-Jun-05 10:49:53

Ohhelp - Did you get it??

ohhelp Fri 17-Jun-05 07:12:32

yes i did thank you. the nurse said i had up to 72 hours? took it within 48. thank you everyone.
