Confidential & Discrete Service
At Haven Pharmacy Burkes we deal with requests for Emergency Contraception in a confidential, non-judgemental and welcoming environment, where you can feel safe and at ease.
Our expert pharmacists will answer your questions in one of our private consultation rooms.
To save you time when you come to the pharmacy, we have an online form that you may complete in advance. We can have your form assessed and ready for you when you come to the pharmacy.
If you have a medical card, emergency contraception is available free of charge.

Emergency Contraception FAQs
No. Emergency contraception is available without a prescription, subject to meeting certain criteria.
Emergency contraception is a safe and effective method of preventing pregnancy when regular contraception has failed or if no contraception was used. It can be effective up to 120 hours after unprotected sex but is more effective the sooner you use it.
The service is available for free for medical card holders. A fee applies to anyone who does not have a medical card. To find out more, speak to your local Haven Pharmacy pharmacist.
