Morning After Pill (Emergency Contraception Pill)
Emergency contraception (ECP), otherwise known as the ‘morning after pill’ has been available in Ireland without prescription since 2011. It is taken to help prevent pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse.
Both versions of the ECP are available on the medical card, but to get this you must visit your doctor to get a prescription before presenting it at the pharmacy.
