I need plan b but can’t afford it

If you’re in need of emergency contraception (AKA the morning-after pill) You can buy pills that contain levonorgestrel (like Plan B and other generic brands) over the counter at your local drugstore or pharmacy and online. You may be able to get the morning-after pill for free or low cost from a Planned Parenthood health center or your local health department. Call your nearest Planned Parenthood to see if they can hook you up with emergency contraception that fits your budget. The staff at your local Planned Parenthood health center can help you figure out if your health insurance will pay for your emergency contraception.

 Since the morning-after pill works better the sooner you take it, it’s a good idea to buy it BEFORE you need it. You can keep it in your medicine cabinet and it will be there for you, just in case. That way you can take it as soon as possible if an accident happens, and you won’t have to worry about finding it at the store when you’re totally stressed out.
