The Emergency Contraceptive Pill (ECP) is available behind the counter at pharmacies and at local health clinics including Lambton Public Health. No prescription is needed.

The ECP is only a back-up method and should not be used in place of a regular birth control method. It can be taken when no protection was used, the condom or barrier broke, or birth control was used incorrectly. It cannot terminate a pregnancy that has already started but, if taken within 5 days of unprotected sexual intercourse, it can prevent a pregnancy from starting.

Sexual Health Clinic Schedule - includes hours and locations of sexual health clinics at Lambton Public Health.
