Morning After Pill Prescription Service
In Malta and Gozo the morning after pill is available without the need for a doctor's prescription. This means that for many women, buying the morning after pill is a relatively simple process which involves visiting a pharmacy, answering questions related to health, and buying the morning after pill. However, there are situations where having a doctor's prescription for a morning after pill could help, such as:
- When the person who needs the morning after pill is not keen to answer questions about their health and sexual activity in a pharmacy, and would prefer to consult a doctor privately. A prescription in this case would be proof that a doctor has already determined that a morning after pill is indicated and safe, and the pharmacist would not need to ask questions again.
- When the person who needs the morning after pill has a complex medical history which may make a pharmacist unsure whether it is safe to dispense the morning after pill. A prescription in this case would reassure the pharmacist that a doctor has done the necessary checks to ensure the morning after pill can be given safely.
- When the person who needs the morning after pill is less than 18 years of age and their pharmacist has not dispensed them the morning after pill because of their age.
This is where our Morning After Pill Prescription Service can help. It is a medical consultation service through which we provide you with a prescription for the morning after pill, if it is safe to do so. You can make use of this service by completing an online consultation, after which a doctor will be in touch with you.
After a prescription is issued, you can ask us to either send it electronically to a pharmacy that we know sells the morning after pill, or give you the prescription to present to any pharmacy of your choice. Further details will be provided after you complete the online consultation.
The cost for using this service is EUR 1, which goes towards maintaining the website. Our doctors run this service on a voluntary basis. If you are unable to pay this, please send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and state your reason, and we may waive the fee at our discretion. You do not have to pay the fee if you are under 18 years old. Remember that the fee is only for the prescription and does not cover the cost of the morning after pill.
