Under 25s' sexual health and contraception during Covid-19

It is important to look after your sexual health and contraception needs during this time. Please contact us, we won't judge you!

Brook Euston, the Brandon Centre and Pulse N7 remain open during Covid-19. We offer telephone consultations, with booked appointments where needed. Please call us before coming to a clinic.

Don’t delay accessing:

  • emergency and regular contraception
  • testing and treatment of sexually transmitted infections
  • pregnancy testing, advice and referral for abortion, if that’s what you choose.

Contact us:

You can also contact us for your sexual health and contraception needs if you are self-isolating or shielding and we will give you advice and support. Our opening times and services may be impacted because of Covid-19 so please check with us before you come.

Emergency contraception (morning after pill)

If you had sex without a condom, or a condom split and you are not taking regular contraception, you can take emergency contraception (EC). There are three types of EC:

  • Levonelle (pill) – can be taken up to 72 hours (three days) after sex
  • EllaOne (pill) – can be taken up to 120 hours (five days) after sex
  • Emergency coil – can be inserted up to 120 hours (five days) after sex.

Contact us as soon as you can. EC is more effective the sooner you take it so it is important to take it as soon as possible. If you are under 25 years old, you can get FREE EC at our clinics or these pharmacies in Camden and Islington.

Pharmacies may be affected by Covid-19 and may have limited supply of emergency pills. Please contact them as soon as possible and check that they can offer you free EC within the timeframe you are in so you don’t miss your window for taking it.
