Accidents happen — that's why we have emergency contraception, also known as the morning after pill or Plan B.
Emergency contraception (EC) is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy after unprotected intercourse. It can be started up to five days (120 hours) after unprotected intercourse.
The two-pill dosage lasts up to three years and we offer it at the lowest price, so keep EC in your medicine cabinet just in case.
You may want EC if:
- The condom broke or slipped off, and he ejaculated in your vagina.
- You forgot to take your birth control pills, insert your ring, or apply your patch.
- Your diaphragm or cap slipped out of place, and he ejaculated inside your vagina.
- You miscalculated your "safe" days.
- He didn't pull out in time.
- You weren't using any birth control.
- You were forced to have unprotected vaginal sex, or were raped.
Emergency contraception is available over the counter for women and men 17 and older. Women under age 17 can get prescription emergency contraception following a visit with a Planned Parenthood health care provider. Remember to bring a valid state ID when coming to purchase emergency contraception.
