Morning-after Pill Service - Plan Ahead, In Advance of Need
How Anytime Doctor can help me?We provide this regulated, specialist service for women aged 18 or over who would like to plan ahead and have the morning-after pill ready before you need it. Accidents can happen. Though condoms are a very safe method of contraception they can split or be used incorrectly. This service allows you to plan ahead and have a morning-after pill pack ready. If you have already had unprotected sex, you should NOT use this service. Please go to your local GP, pharmacy or family planning clinic straight away.
All services provided by Anytime Doctor are confidential (we do not inform your GP) and allow you to get tested and treated within the privacy of your home and without the potential embarrassment of a face-to-face doctor consultation or the inconvenience of lengthy waiting rooms.
How does the Anytime Doctor service work?
|Step 1:||Register online and complete the free online medical questionnaire consultation. A doctor will review your questionnaire and, if it is safe to do so, approve you for treatment. You do not pay for your doctor consultation.|
|Step 2:||If you are approved for treatment you will be sent a text message asking you to log back into your secure patient record. You can pay for your morning-after pill service using a debit or credit card.|
|Step 3:||Order before 4pm Monday to Friday and our partner UK Pharmacy will aim to dispense and despatch your medicine in that day's post using Royal Mail Special Delivery for delivery before 1pm the next working day. Your medicine can be delivered to your work or home address, someone needs to sign for the delivery but it does not have to be you.|
Why are no prices shown for Anytime Doctor treatment services?At Anytime Doctor, we aim to offer you similar pattern of healthcare as if you were to visit your normal GP for a face to face consultation. We believe it is important that you complete a medical consultation and receive a diagnosis by a licensed doctor before you are offered treatment options. Once a doctor has approved you for treatment all prices are clearly displayed. Your registration and medical consultation is free and you are under no obligation to purchase any treatment after your consultation.
How to take your morning-after pillOne tablet should be taken as soon as possible, preferably within 12 hours, and no later than 72 hours after unprotected intercourse. If vomiting occurs within three hours of taking the tablet, another tablet should be taken immediately. Levonelle can be used at any time during the menstrual cycle unless menstrual bleeding is overdue as you should NOT take levonelle if you might be pregnant.
What are the potential side-effects (contraindications) of this morning-after pill?All medication can cause side effects. The morning-after pill has no serious or long lasting side-effects. Some women may suffer from nausea after taking the emergency pill. Rarely some women may vomit after taking the pill. Very rarely the morning-after pill may cause a rash.
When answering your medical questionnaire for the morning-after pill it is very important that you answer the questions truthfully to ensure your doctor has a full picture of your medical history before they prescribe you the pill.
How effective is the morning-after pill?Clinical studies showed that the morning-after pill if taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex prevented 84% of expected pregnancies. It has been shown to be more effective than this if taken within 24 hours of unprotected sex and if at all possible should be taken within 12 hours. If you vomit within two hours of taking the morning-after pill, it probably has not worked. The morning-after pill is far less effective than ongoing contraceptive and won't protect you from STD/STIs.
Who should not use this particular morning-after pill service?You should not use this service if:
1. You are already pregnant
2. You are under 18
3. You are allergic to levonorgestrel
4. You are the partner of the women who wants the morning-after pill
