A copper IUD can be used as emergency contraception if inserted within five after unprotected sex. This is the most effective type of emergency contraception. SHORE Centre offers copper IUD insertions for this purpose at both our Kitchener and Guelph clinics.
Alternatively, an emergency contraceptive pill (AKA the morning-after pill or Plan B) can be taken within 120 hours (5 days) after having unprotected sex. Plan B can be purchased at most pharmacies without a prescription.
Please contact SHORE Centre at 519-743-9360 to book an appointment for an IUD insertion for the purpose of emergency contraception.
