If you're planning to travel outside the UK, you may need to be vaccinated against some of the serious diseases found in other parts of the world.
We are able to offer advice on potential health risks to customers wishing to undertake foreign travel. We carry up-to-date information on world-wide vaccine and malaria prevention recommendations.

There are two kinds of emergency contraceptive pill. Levonelle has to be taken within 72 hours (three days) of sex, and ellaOne has to be taken within 120 hours (five days) of sex. Both work by preventing or delaying ovulation (release of an egg).
The IUD can be inserted into your uterus up to five days after unprotected sex, or up to five days after the earliest time you could have ovulated. It may stop an egg from being fertilised or implanting in your womb.
Emergency contraception does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
